SEA LIFE London
New for 2018: Dive into a family adventure!
Think you’re as stealthy as a shark, or have the appetite of a turtle?
Come along to SEA LIFE London this summer to find out which of our Six Stars of the Sea you are! We’re inviting you to dive deeper to get to know our Sharks, Turtles, Clownfish, Native Rays, Seahorses and of course, our Gentoo penguins from the 20th July – 3rd September. With daily talks, feeds, face painting and activities, you can learn all about our creatures to decide which personality type you match up to. You might be surprised with which fish you’re most closely related to!

DO YOU HAVE WHAT IT TAKES?
We need the toughest of explorers to face our rainforest, and you can take a peak at our checklist below to see if you have what it takes to #BravetheBugs:
- You must be bold enough to come face to fang with some creepy crawlies!
Here in our Rainforest Adventure we dare you to put your head up into our pop up displays, where only centimetres of glass separate you from our giant Goliath Bird Eating Tarantula. You heard that right: BIRD-EATING, Yikes! These guys are one of the largest species of spider, and can sense their prey by feeling the vibrations in the ground – so whatever you do, don’t make any sudden movements.
- You’ll need to be patient enough to go croc’ spotting
Can you spot our crocodiles giving you their best croco-smiles? We’re welcoming three West African Dwarf Crocodiles to our newest adventure, and you can see if you can spot them lurking silently in the water, or basking in the sun. Can you see their teeth? Unlike alligators, these guys’ have teeth that stick out even when their mouths are closed. Crikey!
- You’ve got to have a bit of BITE to keep up with our piranha’s feeding frenzy!
With the UK’s biggest collection of Piranhas residing here at SEA LIFE London, you’re sure to have an eye-full when it comes to feeding times. With over 200 Red-Bellied Piranha’s getting ready for meal time, make sure you have a front row seat for the feeding frenzy! But did you know: Although these guys love a feast- their stomach is only as big as their eye ball!
- You’ll need to bring along your best pair of binoculars
Not all of our creatures are so big and fierce – we also have the small and mighty! Check out our colony of leaf cutter ants. Only millimetres long, these guys can carry up to 50 times their body weight – that’s the equivalent of us carrying a van! Blimey.
Each ant has their own role in the colony: Nurses, foragers, gardeners, trash handlers, a little bit like our society. Can you spot who’s who?
- You’ll need a great sense of adventure!
The rainforest isn’t for the faint hearted, but it sure is going to be a wild journey that we want you to be a part of! So if you’re ready to face the fangs, gawk at the biggest feeding frenzy and snap up the chance to meet our crocs
