Recently, we were visited by Animals UK. They brought along lots of different animals to help us with our learning. We learnt all about a boa constrictor, a tarantula, a fennec fox and a tiny owl. We learnt all about their adaptations and how these help them survive. We also learnt about their habitats and what they eat.
