We have been really busy learning all about animals. We have discovered what animal groups a variety of animals belong to:
mammals reptiles amphibians
insects birds fish
We know all about the different habitats:
Rainforest Desert Ocean Woodland
Mountains African plains Arctic
We have also learnt about what they eat:
carnivores herbivores omnivores
Visitors at the park have expressed their concern regarding the animals welfare. The animals look sad, their enclosures are untidy and the crocodile is really snappy!
So, the Animal Heroes set off to provide support and to share their knowledge of reptiles with the keepers at the park. The team made passports to travel by aeroplane and have their tickets ready. They travelled to Australia in 5 pictures.
The animal heroes arrived at the park and went in to see what they could find.
"The animals are mixed up!"
"There are no 'Stay Away' signs"
"The eggs are not hatching!"
The team spoke to some of the keepers at the park and found out that a few of them were new. They needed training and some information about how to care for all the reptiles correctly. The Animal Heroes were going to be very busy!
The first job was to sort all the reptiles into groups and place them into appropriate enclosures.
The Animal Heroes have been contacted by the Museum team (year 4) as they have found a bat in the entrance of a cave, that is alive but not moving. Can we help? Yes we can!
