A visit from a less cuddly side of the animal kingdom

May 30th 2012

Residents at Cumberland enjoyed a visit from the creepier parts of the animal kingdom when Zoolab visited us on Wednesday 30th May.

Zoolab specialises in animal handling sessions which also explain the habitat and lives of animals from all around the world.

The event was organised by Activities Coordinators Rachel Yeoman and Laura Shepherd. Rachel said: “Other homes have pat dogs but our residents decided to be a bit more adventurous and enjoyed meeting the rats, snakes and scorpions.”
