Feathers, Fur & Scales for Primary School - Reptile Encounters


Why do birds, mammals and reptiles have different skin coverings? Your class will get up-close with one of our inquisitive marsupials, a cheeky feathered friend, and an awesome mix of Australian reptiles to discover the features of each animal group and why it makes them suited to their habitats and biology. Find out what they eat, where they live, how they survive in their natural habitats and more.
