The talk went pretty well, all the kids were very interested in what I had to say, and looking at my spiders. I also took an emp scorpion to show them a relation of spiders. I showed them loads of old shed skins and let them hold them. They were a little gutted I wouldn't let them hold a T, but was pretty impressed when I held my adult female chili. I did try showing them a T eat, but there were a lot of vibrations (was done in sports hall sort of place) and the T's were a little nervouse so none ate. I also took a large piece of card with circles on it showing the size different T's reach. Even the adults who ran it was amazed that there is a T that can reach 12".

I quite enjoyed it and look forward to doing the talk on reptiles.
