Presenter Heather John returned to DZG with one critter more than she left with for a recent Outreach visit.
Heather led a Creature Feature at Cradley Heath Library but came back with an extra hedgehog although this one won’t need food or water like lesser hedgehog tenrecs Eccles, as it’s actually a little knitted hedgehog given to Heather as a thank you present!
Heather said: “The hedgehogs were being made as part of the craft activities at the library and they gave one to me I love it!
“The session went really well and everyone seemed to enjoy meeting the animals.”
As part of the one-hour workshop Heather introduced the library visitors to a rainbow boa, Madagascan hissing cockroach, giant African land snail, blue-tongued skink, ferret, rats and a chinchilla.
