Spiders and scaly creatures were welcomed to North Lindsey College, to allow Isle students on animal care courses to handle them.

Although the college itself cares for 30 different species, and offers a dog grooming service, Green Tree Reptiles from Hatfield was able to provide unusual subjects in the form of tarantulas, snakes, frogs and iguanas.

Students who complete the animal care courses typically go on to take up careers such as pet shop assistants, veterinary nurses, stable workers, or dog groomers, while some go on to higher education.
