Residents met Kaa the royal python, Mr Tickles the cockroach, Incy Wincy the tarantula, Anastasia the tortoise, hedgehog Sonic and a sugar glider named Gizmo.

Home manager Debbie Clark said: “A lot of our residents are very keen on animals and this is an excellent opportunity for the residents to get up close and personal with some animals they would not normally see.”
