Any 1st Woosehill Beavers that had ever wondered what the difference is between a rabbit and a guinea pig, what to do with a poorly goldfish or how best to care for a Leopard Gecko had all their questions answered (and more!) when they visited Pets at Home, Winnersh. Swifts and Kingfishers were given a guided tour to learn all about the animals, fish and reptiles kept there and take a peek behind the scenes to find out how the knowledgeable team run things which helped the Beavers on their way to earn their Animal Friend Activity badge. The lucky youngsters even got to cuddle guinea pigs and hamsters and ended the visit by giving the goldfish their tea!
