Jean Birks gets to know some of the exotic creatures

Two Bearded Dragons named Romeo and Juliet were just some of the exotic visitors at St. Werburgh’s House Care Home in Spondon this week.

Residents, relatives, and staff at the home were treated to an exciting array of scaly and furry creatures during a wildlife workshop.

Four adorable guinea pigs proved to be a crowd favourite. A chinchilla and turtles were also welcomed into the home. Those who felt brave enough were also able to get up close to snakes, a tarantula, a centipede, a giant cockroach and even a scorpion, which were bought in by the experienced wildlife handlers.

St Werburgh’s, which is part of Embrace, even enticed their Regional Manager, Sean Hather, to hold a snake and the tarantula!

Bryony Keeling, Manager at St. Werburgh’s House, said:

“Everyone really enjoyed getting to see these creatures, and to interact with everything from guinea pigs to snakes!

“This was a great way to celebrate the festive season!”
