DARWINS aplenty have been calling into Combe Martin Museum as part of a Darwin in Devon exhibition to mark 200 years since the naturalist's birth.

The children of Combe Martin Pre-school serenaded Mr Darwin, alias museum volunteer Graham Pink, on his birthday when they visited the village museum to find out more about his theory of evolution and enjoy craft activities.

Evolving iguanas was just one of the fun activities that children enjoyed when Mr Darwin in the form of Steve Eddy from Exmoor Zoo called in with a few scaly friends.

Combe Martin Museum has been running the Darwin in Devon exhibition at its new Cross Street premises near the seaside and will be hosting more family activities and events throughout the summer.
