Hi there. I am Laura and I am the owner and founder of Our Animal World.
I am an ex teacher who gave up teaching so I could go round educating all ages on animals instead! I am also an animal assisted therapist with SEN experience as well.
I love all animals (which is probably a good thing as we have around 300 in total here!) and my favourite animal changes almost daily as they are all so wonderful and full of character! One of my soft spots are my rescues such as Jade the Chinese water dragon who was left behind by a previous owner, most of my rabbits (some were living in terribly small hutches with no run access, some were given up as children 'got bored', some were just generally unwanted), the ferrets and some of our birds. Being able to give them a home they didn't have before is the best feeling, especially seeing them grow in confidence and character- it really warms my heart.

I’m a lover of animals all shapes and sizes. My favourite animals here at Our Animal World are our Pied Royal python named Freya and our Green Bottle Blue tarantula named Natasha.
