Reptiles, insects and mammals from all around the world have all greeted visitors to the museum as part of the Museum’s half term programme.
Animals of all shapes and sizes have descended upon Ipswich Museum.
Snakes and tarantulas were just some of the creatures available for visitors to interact with.
Experts from the company Zoos 4 You were on hand to teach youngsters about the creepy crawlies on offer.
The animals are appearing at the museum for three days with each day focusing on a different area of the world.
Tuesday’s event theme was the Americas with Wednesday and Thursday taking on the Africa and Madagascar and Australia and Asia themes respectively.
Melanie Hollis, Collections and Learning Curator at Ipswich Museum said “It’s a very popular event.
