Mini-beast is the term used to identify many different types of arthropods and invertebrates. Or simply put, a small animal.

Examples of Mini-Beasts including spiders, millipedes, wasps, worms, beetles, flies and thousands more exist all over the world. Britain alone has 40,000 known species of Mini-Beast.

Mini-Beasts are better known as invertebrates (without a backbone). To make up for their lack of backbone, many have a hard shell called an exoskeleton, which will help protect them.

Roughly 97% of all animals are invertebrates and without them we would not be able to survive. Each invertebrate plays a crucial role in our ecosystem whether it is a pollinator, waste recycler or even providing food for other animals.

In this workshop we discuss and display a wide variety of different invertebrates whilst giving the students the chance to touch, hold and interact with them.

What is the Core Focus?
  • What are the different groups of invertebrate?
  • Where do you find mini-beasts?
  • What do mini-beasts eat?
  • Why are they important?
What Animals are used?

A mix of Mammals, Reptiles/Amphibians and Invertebrates are used for this topic.
