Mr Distel wears the latest in animal fashion!

On Monday and Tuesday this week we had “Wild Action” visit Hawkesdale – Xavier and his menagerie of native Australian animals came to school. It was a fast-paced, action-packed show with the opportunity to touch many of the creatures including a tiny squirrel glider, green tree-frog, stumpy-tailed lizard, short-necked turtle, black-headed python and salt-water crocodile. One of the largest animals was an olivine python – about 3 metres long and growing up to 75 kg in weight! Students from Prep to year 9 had the opportunity to see the show, hear Xavier talk about the classification of animals and their various adaptations, diets and behaviours. Many of the teachers tried out a snake-skin scarf, including Mr Distel, while the students modelled tree-frog hats and turtle-burgers!
