At least Mummy loved handling them, even the millipede, which has always grossed me out a bit when I've seen them on TV!
Afterwards, Iona got to meet a pair of guinea pigs, which she'd been hoping the woman would bring (I thought it unlikely, though). They weren't a part of the show, but the woman kindly got them out for Iona anyway, which thrilled her:
Before the Zoo Quest show we had our yearly bring and buy sale. I'd persuaded Iona to help me make some krispie cakes (some chocolate, some marshmallow) yesterday, and she had her first taste of capitalism by using the takings from selling them to buy 2 biscuits, 6 books, and a toy Shrek. Overall, a great success!
