Colin Stevenson, the Education Officer at “Crocodiles of the World”, will be talking about “The amazing physiology of Crocodiles” from 7pm on 12th November (moved from October).
Crocodiles have survived for over a hundred million years and one of the reasons for their survival is their physiology.
They have a very advanced immune system which means that if they are bitten, for example by another crocodile, they do not develop blood poisoning.
They also have a much more sophisticated heart than ourselves.
The Regency Suite is above the Conservative Club in Shanklin in Palmerston Road just off the High Street.
The nearest car parks are in Landguard Road and Orchardleigh Road, both only two or three minutes walk to the Conservative Club. Parking is free after 6pm.
As we have to pay a rent for the facilities, we have to ask for a donation of at least £3 on the door to make sure we cover all our expenses. i.e. the rent, cost of speakers’ travel expenses and a meal, plus overnight accommodation if needed.
