On the 17th of April Rang a hAon went on an educational tour to the Zoology and Marine Biology Museum on the NUIG Campus in Galway city.

We began the tour with a visit to the Ryan Institute where the newly refurbished Zoology and Marine Biology Museum is housed.  Here the children received a guided tour of the museum and its over 500 specimens on display.  These included a wide range of animals, native and exotic creatures from all over the world.

Finally, we met Dayle Leonard a Master‚Äôs student in the Venom Systems and Proteomics Laboratory in the Zoology department.  Here Dayle showcased some of the animals under his care including, Kunza the Burmese Python,  Willy the Russian Tortoise, Francis the Australian Blue-tongued Skink, Lenny the Leopard Gecko, Mildred the South American Millipede, Buster the Scorpion, and Motchy the Tarantula.

During the class Dayle explained to the children about the various animals and their habitats and characteristics.  Everyone got a chance to view and handle some the animals under Dayle‚Äôs expert supervision.  The children really enjoyed the Q & A session at the end of the class.  This tour was an amazing experience for the children.

We ended the day with a visit to the Millennium Children‚Äôs Park and Playground across the road.  The children had a fantastic day.
