Exotic Animal Handling Sessions

Exotic Animal Handling Sessions

If you’ve ever wanted to learn about, and handle, snakes, reptiles and large bugs up close, then you’re in for a treat as the Museum welcomes small animal experience specialists, Frazoo.

Run by primary school teacher, Frazie Hulbert, who has had a passion for exotic animals since childhood, these exciting and informative activity sessions with gentle, friendly animals are ideal for curious-minded children aged 5 years and over. Frazie has given many animal talks in schools with her own animals, and as a volunteer at Bristol Zoo and the Totnes Rare Breeds Farm.

So if you fancy stroking a stick insect, cuddling a chameleon, bonding with a beetle, giggling at a gecko, or snuggling with a snake, give the Museum a call on 01803 293975 to reserve your tickets. But spaces are very limited, as handling sessions are small, so book your tickets quickly to avoid disappointment.
