Can you find an interesting fact about a minibeast? I found out that centipede means 100 footed, but most centipedes do not have 100 feet. They vary from having 15 pairs of legs to 177 pairs!

Do all mini beasts have 6 legs Adam? At Dunham Massey we found spiders, slugs, pond snails, millipedes, worms and lots of other creatures that didn't have 6!
