  1. Haha parents!

    Will you be going to London Zoo? I highly recommend it πŸ˜‰ I used to work there so yes we do have a spider programme which is as creepy as it sounds.

  2. And if you’re into baby animals, you can have a peep at our tiger cubs and baby sloths! The exhibits get you close to the animals but no touching πŸ˜‰

  3. Tut tut, haha! There is a petting area though and if you’re lucky enough, you can have pet a ferret or an armadillo (!). We used to take them out for a stroll in the morning. Or a giant land snail or hissing cockroach if you’re brave enough πŸ˜‰
