Years 2 and 3 pupils from Lady Seaward’s Church of England Primary School and Clyst St Mary Primary School joined Nick Baker and Devon’s Crealy’s Animal Team for the grand opening on Friday 28th March 2014 where they had the opportunity to get very close to a menagerie of extraordinary bugs and insects.

Nick, former presenter of BBC’s The Really Wild Show, gave the school children a fascinating display and insight into the intriguing world of bugs, including encounters with giant African land snails, Chilean Rose Tarantulas, Madagascan hissing cockroaches and Jungle Nymph Stick Insects.
