Fur, Feathers, Scales and Prickles

1st Woosehill Beavers got up close and personal with a menagerie of creatures with fur, feathers, scales and even prickles when the Animal Man came to see them with his friends. Both Swifts (Tuesday Beavers) and Kingfishers (Wednesday Beavers) were able to handle the animals while they learned all about their lifestyles from Luke Quirk. The session featured such exotic creatures as a Giant African Millipede, Corn Snake and African Pygmy Hedgehog while also including more familiar varities such as a chicken, baby guinea pig and a giant house rabbit. The Beavers new found animal handling skills and knowledge is being put to good use as they work towards their Animal Friend badge.
