About: “Working for ZooLab means every day is very different and extremely interesting. I also like working with a wide range of ages, and hearing the funny questions we get asked about the animals.
My favourite ZooLab animal is Terry, the giant African millipede. He loves to tickle peoples’ hands with all his legs during workshops and loves to eat melon and cucumber.”
Interesting Fact: Heather lived in South Africa for two years working with baboons, penguins and Vervet monkeys. While at the Vervet Monkey Foundation she lived in a tent for a over year!
