Children loved getting up close and personal with some exotic animals.

The Animal Experience Day enabled children up to 11 years old to meet a whole range of animals including meercats, skunks, rabbits, chinchillas, frogs, giant snails and lizards from Animal Workshops.

The experience day was held yesterday morning at St Margaret's Prep School, Gosfield.
