National Portrait Gallery visit

Meerkats and Turtles class visited the National Portrait Gallery recently to study paintings of explorers who hunted for treasure.  We learnt about Charles Waterton.  He studied animals just like Charles Darwin.  You can find out more about Waterton here:

He once sat on a crocodile’s back so he could count and measure its teeth!

Can you pretend to be Charles Waterton and write a diary entry about the day you saw the crocodile?
