From snakes to baby chicks, Longfield Care Home in Eglinton had a visit from them all when Kidz Farm stopped by to visit the residents.
It wasn't just the residents who enjoyed some animal therapy as all the staff got involved too. Everyone was queuing up for a cuddle with a fluffy chick or bunny, and for those brave enough, having a hold of a snake or lizard.
Val Porter, Personal Activities Leader, told us: "The animals were amazing - we all learnt a lot of fun facts and figures from their handlers. There were quite a few brave residents who had a go at holding the snakes and lizards - some of the staff however weren't that brave! It was a fantastic afternoon and we hope to see Kidz Farm at Longfield again soon".
