Giving Treats to the Kirkley Hall Animals

Giving Treats to the Kirkley Hall Animals


At Kirkley Hall this week pupils got to look at a variety of animals. We went to the rodent room and handled the rats: Smurf, Charlie and Chunk. As well as holding the rats, we gave them raisins as treats. We also got the Chinchillas out and give them treats. We walked round the 'Walk of Life' to see the primates, lizards and armadillos. We were lucky enough to see the asian leopard cat as usually they are hiding! On our tour around the zoo we saw some exotic birds like the Von der Decken's Hornbill better known as 'Zazu' from the Lion King! We also saw the male Temminck's Tragopan and gave him peanuts as treats.
