Such a great experience

"Such a great experience, everyone enjoyed holding the animals. I never thought I would be able to bring myself to hold a scorpion!"

"I was terrified of most of the animals when I came in but by the end all my fear was gone!"

"The day was inspiring, he helped me get over my fears of snakes and spiders. I am now more confident to hold different animals and I learnt some awesome facts about humans and animals during is talks."


Simon has returned to Southend High School for Girls every summer for the past 4 years to give an educational hands-on talk about the variety of animals he brings along with him to our Year 8 students. It is now an integral part of the year that the students look forward to and learn a great deal from the experience.
