All of our display and handling animals are specially chosen for friendliness and ease of handling for the children.
We don't let children hold tarantulas (to keep the spider as well as children safe), scorpions or giant centipedes.
Everything else is fine, however, there might be the odd occasion where non-hazardous invertebrates are avoided when they have sharp claws or prickles that can draw blood on young hands.
