Malignant creatures have invaded the National History Museum at Tring – but there’s no need for visitors to panic. The creepy-crawlies and larger specimens are part of the new free-to-enter Deadly! exhibition, on show until July 6.

Based on the popular children’s book by Nicola Davies and illustrated by Neal Layton, Deadly! exposes visitors to some of the world’s most dangerous creatures, specialising in various forms of mayhem from punching and poisoning to drowning and exploding.

Schoolchildren from Grove Road , Bishopwood, St Bartholomews, Francis House, Dundale, Long Marston and Aldbury previewed the exhibition last month, followed by a Q&A with zoologist Nicola Davies.
