YOUNGSTERS got up close with reptiles, rodents and sea creatures over the Easter weekend.

The Royal Navy Submarine Museum in Gosport held a Pesky Pets event to showcase the wonders of the animal world.

And the Blue Reef Aquarium in Southsea took some sea creatures along for the day.

Marketing manager at the submarine museum Bill Sainsbury said: ‘Pets were banned on submarines but that didn’t stop some uninvited guests finding their way on board.

‘We gave youngsters the chance to meet some of those stowaways up close.’

The event was part of the Horrible Science of Submarines exhibition.

It was created by Horrible Science author Nick Arnold and illustrator Tony De Saulles.
