Nocturnal Animal Day
Thursday, 21 October 2021
Take a peak into the night time with animals that prefer the dark. I used to work as a zoo keeper and learnt lots of information about big animals, when I left the zoo I worked for the RSPCA. I helped sick and injured animals to get better and then could release them back to their owners or back to the wild. AnimalTastic has been going now for 9 years and I love my job. I visit schools, nurseries and care homes teaching people about animals. Today I am going to help you learn a lot about two animals that move in different ways. We will then try to see if we can move like them and we are going to make those animals with an art project.
