NATURE lovers and excited tots were able to greet a family of tortoises at a wildlife rescue centre's open event.
Secret World Wildlife Rescue centre in East Huntspill held a hedgehog and tortoise open weekend which allowed families to meet Eric, an 8st pet Chelonian tortoise who made a guest appearance away from his home in the Chew Valley.
Visitors to the centre also had a chance to learn lots of facts about hedgehogs and how people can help them if the endangered animals crawl into their gardens.
