Arsenal nursery goes animal mad

Little Isla Evenden got to grips with a snake while Jaivan Oseni also showed his brave side by feeding a bat as the new nursery at the old Highbury stadium went animal mad for a day.

Kidsunlimited, in the Highbury Square development, off Avenell Road, welcomed an animal entertainer, who let the toddlers hold, stroke and examine everything from lizards to tarantulas.

The children wore fancy dress, brought in their favourite animal toys and learnt some interesting facts about what the animals eat, how they live and where they originate from.
