Dylan's Reptile Time
We had a very exciting time meeting Dylan's reptiles and other pets. We developed our observational skills, listening and understanding, communication and confidence too while we had fun learning about the creatures.
We met Colin the corn snake from America. Dylan told us about snakes smelling with their tongues and having no eyelids. Many children held Rosie the Chilean Rose tarantula. Dylan told us that she shakes her abdomen and flicks out hairs when she's scared. "The tarantula is lovely!" said Olivia. "he feels like a teddy bear," Nathan added. Dylan's boa constrictor Stretch was very heavy! Dave the tortoise moved so slowly because of his heavy shell. Carter and Jonathon that knew turtles are like tortoises but live in the water and can swim. Emma drew a picture of a turtle with a patterned shell.
Jabba, the giant Amazon bull frog, stuck out his tongue and ate a grub. Faye was very excited and mimicked the frog movements. The children touched Sparky, the bearded dragon, he had scales. Dylan had giant African land snails too. Dylan told us that lizards detach their tails when they are attacked so they can escape and then they grow another! Jasmine suggested that the blue tongued skink "has a blue tongue because he had a blue ice-cream."
