Animals of all different stripes ―and spots, feathers, furs, tails, and talons― greeted students at the Cotswold Wildlife Park yesterday. Despite the heavy rain, students enjoyed looking at the animals, from the very large (white rhinos and Bactrian camels), to the very small (leaf-cutter ants and Turkish spiny mice). The Madagascar exhibit introduced students to lemurs (of the ring-tailed, mongoose and collared varieties), the Madagascar teal (a type of dabbling duck), and a radiated tortoise (so called for the star pattern on its shell). Students also enjoyed cuddling up to some of the more approachable animals in the petting area.
Back in LMH, students had a cosy night in, playing board games and letting all their cares slip away in a meditation session ―our Junior Deans Mark and Loretta put on relaxing wave sounds and guided their minds to the seashore to help them relax and unwind after an action-packed day.
