A tarantula, lizard and creepy crawlies visited a Rugby care home to give residents the chance to hold them and find out more about the critters.

ZooLab took a millipede, snake, lizard, tarantula and a guinea pig to newly-opened Anya Court in Dunchurch Road.

The residents were keen to hold the creatures and the millipede and lizard were the biggest hits.

Lifestyle team leader, Emma Wheatley, said: “It was brilliant and such a different activity for our residents to be involved with.

“It was a great opportunity to see creatures you wouldn’t normally be familiar with.”
