Reptile Big Saturday Success!

IMG_7983I’m pleased to report that last weekend’s ‘World of Reptiles’ Big Saturday at the museum really was a huge success, with well over one thousand people attending this superb family event. The place had a great vibe and was absolutely packed full of smiling faces. La Tinto Bros provided a great latin  soundtrack to the day and Jamie and Laura from Chameleoco also really did us proud, bringing some simply stunning captive-bred chameleons along to let everyone enjoy these wonderful creatures up close.

IMG_7909Visitors were also treated to getting up close and learning lots about fossilised reptiles, as a wide range of specimens and a tour of our dinosaurs by Dr Phil Manning were very well-recieved. Our developing Virtual Vivarium app also went down extremely well, as did the tortoises and information kindly provided by the Cheshire Chelonia Group. The many art activities available for the children really made the day, with sock snakes and a giant lizard with colourful scales contributed by all the kids brightening up our discovery centre no end!

I would like to say a huge thanks Vicky and Anna for organising the day, to all who came and supported our day, and also all those attended on Saturday. THANK YOU!
