Children can test their super powers against all the weird and wonderful animals at ZSL Whipsnade Zoo this Easter.

As part of a 2018 Superhero Takeover, youngsters visiting the zoo can embark on a trail around the park and learn about the different skills of the wildlife there.

Every participant is given a special comic book full of fun activities to do around the zoo, including testing their agility against a monkey, their sense of smell against a brown bear, and their stealth of a tiger.

To complete their mission, the children will head to Superhero HQ for some family games.

A series of talks and demonstrations around the zoo will also delve deeper into animal’s special abilities, such as colossal elephants, super-armoured dwarf crocodiles and super-stinky ring-tailed lemurs.

The event runs from March 30 to April 15 2018. Book online at www.zsl.org

Being ill sucks. No matter what’s got you down – the flu, a broken bone, diabetes, cancer – it’s a horrible place to be. Your body is weaker and less capable. The drugs you take mess with your mind and your moods and sometimes can make you feel even worse than when you started. Mental ill-health is no different. The brain is an organ, and like any organ, it doesn’t always function to the medical standard of “normal”. Mine certainly doesn’t.
