Creepy crawlies invaded a residential care home in Mitcham last week.

African snails, a tarantula, giant millipede, snakes, rats and cockroaches were all invited to the Cumberland Care Home in Mitcham on Wednesday, May 30, as part of a workshop held by creepy crawly experts, Zoolab.

Rachel Yeoman, active living co-ordinator at the home, said: "All of the residents thoroughly loved it and got great enjoyment from it.

"There were one of two that stood back and observed when it came to the snake and the spider, but a lot of them got involved with holding the animals."
