Hands On Terraristics: Easter exhibition in the Animal Park Part 4/5

Yesterday ( Hands On Terraristics: Easter Exhibition in the Animal Park Part 3/5 ) the men especially showed their courage - after all, it was "Men's Day". With a chance to hold a tarantula in your hand or to have a snake touching your beard - the men really got their money's worth and proved that these animals really aren’t scary. The journalists were thrilled by the creepers and crawlers as well.

In this five-part series we’ll give detailed reports about the exhibition, the animals and our experiences. To highlight our cooperation with the Terrarienkreis Kiel (TKK), we have included the club members’ reports in journal form unedited to this post. We are always delighted to cooperate with passionate people, especially in this increasingly shrinking hobby segment.

Below you will find the original report by Philipp Kirchhoff and his team from Terrarienkreis Kiel:

Easter (Sunday, 21 April 2019)

Some of the members were still feeling the after effects of the Easter fire, but quickly recovered as the morning went on. The weather did not let us down and once again the park was filled with visitors. The warm temperatures and the intense sunshine meant we had to shade and open the roof of the Paradise Hall.

It was the same in the Tropical Hall, as the temperatures threatened to rise to 35°C, like the day before. We needed to open several doors - a fully new experience. In the previous years it was mostly too cold. There was a slight mishap with our Mexican red knee tarantula Isolde when she peed on a visitor. This was another fully new experience in all our exhibition years. No doubt an omen for good luck.

The fact that our insects were so well received made us very happy. Apart from the Malayan jungle nymphs there were also the golden-eyed stick insects, those giant locusts from South America (Tropidacris collaris), stick insects, bizarre looking Australian walking sticks, Madagascar hissing cockroaches and many more.

By Easter Monday we had reached the home stretch.

Our leaf insect (Malayan Jungle Nymph) Irmgard then made itself at home in the Chairman’s beard during the interview.

The weather remained fantastic and the visitors continued to stream in. We really couldn't have asked for more. At this point we need to mention that with crowds like this the well-being of the animals took priority and we were unfortunately unable to meet every demand for interaction with them.
