During the educational trip to Blue Post Animal Park, our FS2 children were excited to see and learn about the different animals that the park takes care of.
Here are some interesting facts we learnt;
The park has three types of tortoises – pancake, leopard and bell hinge-back
The park exports tortoises to China and other countries
The giant rat is aquatic, which means it lives in water
Porcupines are called nungunungu in Swahili
Crocodiles have a strong jaw and they can keep their mouths open for up to 3 hours. They also have no tongues, which means they cannot taste their food
Syke monkeys like sweets
The guinea fowl has pretty colours
The rock python enjoys a rabbit dinner
The black mamba is poisonous
Ostriches are harmless if left alone
After the animal park tour, the children walked to the Chania falls and enjoyed some free play at the playground. It was a fun-tastic day.
