A rather interesting visitor…

Today in Year Three unexpectedly we has a rather large visitor- a goliath bird eating spider, these spiders live in the Amazon Rainforest!

However it was only its skin! Like snakes and lizards, some spiders also shed their skin when they are growing- it looked just like the real thing. It was extremely hairy and it even had its fangs  still.

Thank you Mrs D for bringing it in to show us- we had lots of questions for Mrs D about this particular spider, but she couldn’t answer them all. If you are interested in finding out more about this creature you can do some research for home learning and put this into your green book.
