and the perfect time to introduce one of our SSSSSuper wee critters!
As a cold-blooded animal snakes rely on the heat of their surroundings to regulate their temperature.

Bazza joined my family last year and he has been starting to take part in my interactive animal education sessions over the last few weeks! He will be helping me deliver a range of curriculum-based topics including our 'some like it hot' topic (about how species are adapted to different climates) and 'we are family' (all about classification).
