Josie’s birthday treat

Nine-year-old Josie Hancox, from Stratford-upon-Avon, had a special birthday treat when she got hands-on with a host of creatures from the Discovery Centre.


DZG Presentation Assistant, Amy Hickman, introduced Josie and her family to a variety of small reptiles and cuddlies, including Boo the chinchilla and Alfie the guinea pig during a Creature Feature Close Encounter experience.

Amy said: “Josie and her family were really interested in finding out about the different types of animals we have here in the Discovery Centre and loved the opportunity to hold them.”
