GET A GLIMPSE INTO WHAT LIFE IS LIKE AT THE BOTTOM OF OUR OCEANS!
Few people have had the chance or the privilege to really see what life is like in the coldest, darkest recesses of our seas.
But there’s no need to spend a small fortune on deep sea diving gear. You don’t need to travel to some far-flung corner of the world just to catch some of the planet’s most elusive wildlife in action. Sealife Adventure brings all the weird and wonderful creatures of the deep to you in The Abyss, a fascinating yet ever-so-slightly eerie exhibition that will make you look at what’s going on beneath the surface of our oceans in a whole new light!
Wander around the nooks, crannies and impressive ice caves of this underwater wonderland and learn all about how these animals have adapted to survive some of the harshest conditions on Earth. From rare fish to sneaky spider crabs, there’s so much to catch sight of here – and you’ll leave with a much better understanding of some of the strangest organisms known to man!
A SAMPLE OF SPECIES
Spider crab (Maja squinado) undertakes some form of migration where they move in great numbers (presumably as a defence against predators) into deeper water, often covering tens of miles over several months! They are relatives to the gigantic Japanese spider crab which can grow to over 3.7m!
Lumpsucker (Cyclopterus lumpus) is found in the Arctic and on both sides of the North Atlantic. It is a large Lumpsucker and attains a maximum length and weight of about 60 centimetres (2 feet) and 5 to 6 kilograms (11–13 pounds).
