Bug Man Photos

Would you be brave enough to stroke a Mexican Red Kneed Tarantula? Have you got nerves that can handle cuddling a hissing cockroach? Could you let a Pink Winged Stick Insect crawl through your hair?

Without a doubt we have some very curious, brave and calm pupils who rose to all those challenges. Fitzroy, Connor, Freddie, Nathan and Ayomide were all very intrigued to learn that Lucy (the spider) has the ability to rub her back legs together and fire hairs into the air. These act as an irritant to put off predators.

Likewise the Madagascan Hissing Cockroaches (which come from Madagascar and hiss when attacked) are able to make a noise that scares off creatures who might be looking to eat them for supper.
