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. Dylan's boa constrictor Stretch was very heavy! Dave the tortoise moved so slowly because of his heavy shell. We touched Princess the royal python and realised that she did not feel slimy!
Jabba, the giant Amazon bull frog, stuck out his tongue and ate a grub. The children touched Sparky, the bearded dragon, he had scales. Dylan told us that lizards detach their tails when they are attacked so they can escape and then they grow another!
The blue tongued skink comes from Australia and uses his tongue to scare off predators. He moved by pulling himself along with his front legs and he had slits for ears. He looked like a snake and a lizard too. He felt smooth and soft to touch.
