Slowly Does It

We were delighted to welcome back our friends from Darwin’s Kingdom, whose mission is to educate people about exotic species. As ever, they were accompanied by an array of unusual reptiles and some that were a little more familiar.

Hesitancy turned to curiosity, followed by delight, as residents were introduced to snakes and lizards. The surprise star of the show, however, was the tortoise. Everyone was transfixed as it steadily walked its way across the room towards them. A member of the Darwin’s Kingdom team then gently lifted it up so people could get a closer look and a touch. The tortoise remained totally unfazed.

Maybe it just goes to prove that taking things a bit more slowly still gets you there in the end.
