On Friday the 8th of November the Grade 000 and Grade 00 classes visited croc city located near Lanseria airport. It was a fantastic opportunity for he children to learn hands on about the fascinating world of reptiles.
We moved between watching an informative DVD about crocodiles and a "touch and feel" session where we were able to hold real crocodile eggs, skins, skulls and a live baby crocodile. The friendly guides then took us on a tour to see the crocodiles, which are over 5m long. We then had our snacks and got a chance to play on the jungle gym. We then had a group reptile session where we were shown a variety of fascinating insects and reptiles.
The highlight of the day for many of us was holding an 18kg albino python around our necks. We all had so much and learnt so much about crocodiles and reptiles in general.
