The top workshops for the summer holidays are:
How slimy is a snail? Where do tarantulas live? How do we classify frogs? Get up-close and hands-on with our unique Animal Explorer workshop.
Guided by your expert ZooLab Ranger, you'll meet a menagerie of reptiles, mammals, inverts, amphibians and arachnids while learning about adaptations, classification, climate, habitats, minibeasts and rainforests.
This fun and interactive workshop perfectly exemplifies why ZooLab is WILD about animals.
Ready, Set, Go!
ZooLab is on the hunt for the athlete of all animal athletes this summer! The annual Naturetown sports day is here, and our animals are ready to put their best foot (or scale) forward to save the Rainforest.
This year's summer library story follows a selection of ZooLab's animals competing to champion four challenges - long jump, javelin, gymnastics and relay. Whose adaptations will place them leagues ahead?
However, all is not what it seems. Our characters soon realise there is 'no I in team' as they must work together to expose a saboteur in their rank to win the competition fair and square.
Animal Therapy, Senses and Textures
Our most popular animal therapy session! Having a ZooLab animal therapy creates a ‘real buzz’, with plenty of personal interaction and everyone getting a chance to handle and learn more about animals that range from tree frogs to snakes to giant millipedes and African land snails. It is a great chance to hear tales of animal behaviour, discover new things and interact with a real animal expert and their animals.
Animal Therapy, Myths and Legends
All over the world there are extraordinary parables and fables about animals. Is there any truth in these ancient myths and legends? Or are they fictitious products of vivid imaginations? Join ZooLab as we explore some of the most amazing myths and legends from around the world - legends that may hold truths that can unlock the secrets of our amazing ZooLab animals.
