10 retro South Tyneside photos from the day the toads, creepy crawlies and slithery snakes came to see you!
Who could forget the day when these exotic creatures came to their school.
Certainly not these pupils who seemed to be having a great time as they mixed with snakes, tree frogs, snails and more.
Look at the smiles on the faces of these students at Harton, Hebburn Monkton and Laygate schools.
We hope these Shields Gazette archive photos bring back great memories.
