A Burmese python called Banana was the star of the show at Rushden Community College.

Members of Forest Floor Reptiles in Rushden visited the college and took in a variety of animals to show to the pupils.

His passion and dedication to providing a safe haven for neglected and mistreated animals was evident.

The pupils were introduced to a whole range of animals including Beryl the tarantula, Steve the bearded dragon and Banana, a 14-foot long Burmese python.

The pupils heard about the creatures’ natural environment and feeding habits as reptiles grow in popularity as pets.

The event was organised by the school’s librarian, Tracey Frohawk, as part of a competition she organised to see which class could read the most books.
