Exotic beasts big and small descended on a Dagenham library as part of a programme of fun-filled school holiday events.
Vic Taylor and a host of creatures, including a snake, tree frog and a millipede, paid a visit to Castle Green Library, in Gale Street, yesterday.
Children had a chance to hold the animals and learn a bit about their temperament, food and where in the wild they would normally live.
Vic is visiting Markyate Library, in Markyate Road, Dagenham today between 2pm and 3pm.
The events are part of a six week programme of free activities for young people called Summer’s Sorted. For more information go to the council’s website lbbd.gov.uk and search Summer’s Sorted.
