DZG Presenter Becky Iwahashi visited Chadsgrove School and Specialist Sports College, in Bromsgrove, to introduce pupils to a variety of new friends.
The students met Shadow the ferret, Ed the bearded dragon, cockroaches and snails during the whole school assembly Creature Feature, based around pets.
Becky said: “I spoke to the students about how to look after exotic pets and how reptiles in particular are not easy to look after because of the specialist care they require.
“As some of the children were visually impaired they were able to touch the animals and I also took along some bio facts, including skins and an elephant tail, for them to feel, too.
“All the students seemed to get a lot out of it and especially enjoyed meeting the animals.”
