In addition, children can do a treasure hunt. On the basis of questions and assignments, they learn fun things about the giant bug, the tarantula and the upturned snake. They go to the lab where there are mainly young animals and are challenged to discover the baby snakes and baby spiders. Finally, they can investigate which poisonous animal they resemble.
