Creepy Crawlies!

Ollie and I had a lovely trip to Staunton Country Park with Helen today. It's the holidays so it was very busy but we had lots of fun playing in the play area, eating ice cream and meeting some MASSIVE bugs in the mini beast encounter. Mini they were not!

On the wobbly bridge. He went all the way across on his own!
Meeting an African Land Snail. This one is 2 and a half but they live to be 20!
Some sort of giant millipede
It's little legs are very strong!

Please note how Ollie didn't want to hold them so I had to be brave! He did decide he wanted to hold the snail at the end but I wasn't able to get a picture. The snail's foot was very strong, you could feel all the muscles working!

To make up for the creepy crawlies, we went to see the baby guinea pigs. Some of them were only a day old so very tiny!
