S.E.A. Aquarium - Nurse Shark 550x268px

Nurse Shark

These nocturnal, docile and sluggish sharks are certainly no man-eaters. They feed predominantly on bottom dwelling animals such as spiny lobsters, shrimps, crabs, sea urchins, squids, octopus, and fish such as mullets and stingrays. They use their relatively small mouths and large throats to suck in food items at high speed.

They can often be found in groups of up to 40, lying very close together during the day, even piling on top of each other. They have thin, fleshy, whisker-like organs called ‘barbels’ situated on the lower jaw in front of the nostrils sense touch and taste which help the sharks locate potential food.

S.E.A. Aquarium - Hammerhead Shark 550x268px

Hammerhead Shark

Ever wondered what it is like to have ‘eyes in the back of your head’- well the hammerhead sharks do! With a wide, thick head shaped head with a double-headed hammer, it is easy to see how the name is derived. Their oddly shaped heads improve their ability to find prey. With wide-set eyes, they have a large visual range which allows them to see almost 360 degrees.

Specialized sensory organs, called ampullae of Lorenzini, are spread over their broad heads allowing them to scan the sea floor for buried prey. They also use this sensory organ to navigate the globe by tracking earth’s electromagnetic field- like an internal GPS!

S.E.A. Aquarium - Giant Moray Eel 550x268px

Giant Moray Eel

Hidden in crevices, with only their small heads protruding, these snakelike fish are the largest of their kind. A slimy mucus covers their skin and protects them from being grazed on rough surfaces. Moray eels spend the majority of the day hiding in crevices with only their heads protruding, as well as catching unsuspecting prey whilst hidden amongst crevices, they can be seen leaving the safety of their lairs to actively hunt for prey.

They are carnivorous, feed mainly on fish and have been observed hunting large prey (and even swallowing them whole!). These giants have Pharyngeal jaws, a second set of jaws contained within their. The first set of jaws bites and capture the prey, the second set springs forward and drags the prey into the eel's throat.

S.E.A. Aquarium - Golden Poison Frog 1366x666px

Poison Arrow Frog

Poisonous amphibians tend to sport bright colours and/or eye-catching patterns. Poison Arrow Frogs are good examples. Their bright colouration is a warning that they are inedible (due to toxic skin secretions) to potential predators. Measuring just 1.5cm to 6cm long, Poison Arrow Frogs derive their toxicity from their natural diet of small insects like poisonous ants, termites and even spiders.

S.E.A. Aquarium - Clownfish 550x268px


These feisty fish live nestled among the tentacles of stinging anemones. A mucus layer, three to four times thicker than other fish, protects the clownfish from their stings. The clownfish and their anemone are highly dependent on each other for survival. Clownfish need the protection they find in their anemones: the anemones' stings keep fish predators at bay.,

In return for providing a safe and protective home for the clownfish, the anemones receive a cleaning service, nutrients in the form of waste, and 'bouncers' that scare away predatory fish such as the butterfly fish. You know what they say, keep your friends close and you're 'anemones' closer. Did you also know that all clownfish start their lives as males!

S.E.A. Aquarium - Reef Manta Ray 550x268px

Reef Manta Ray

These gentle giants are truly fascinating and captivating creatures. Relatives of sharks and rays, they swim throughout the tropical and sub-tropical oceans of the world. With powerful wing-like pectoral fins, they glide around the oceans searching for food.

Despite being one of the largest creatures in our oceans, manta rays feed almost exclusively on some of the tiniest animals in the marine world. Interestingly each manta ray can be individually identified using the spot patterns on their bellies. Just like a human finger print, these patterns are unique to every manta ray.

S.E.A. Aquarium - Sea Nettle 550x268px

Sea Nettle

Living in both tropical and subtropical water, these invertebrates are carnivorous and prey upon a mixture of creatures, such as young minnows, anchovy eggs, worms, and mosquito larvae as well as other sea jellies. Sea nettles trail long tentacles through the water as they drift with the ocean currents.

When the tentacles touch prey, stinging cells shoot tiny harpoons filled with venom that paralyze their prey. From there the prey is moved to the mouth-arms and eventually the mouth where it is digested. Once the prey has been transferred, the tentacles extend again to become fishing lines once more. Animals such as juvenile crabs have been observed using the sea nettles as a means of transportation, attaching themselves to their bodies until they arrive at the shore.

S.E.A. Aquarium - Giant Pacific Octopus 550x268px

Giant Pacific Octopus

This blue blooded, intelligent and sneaky animal is a relative of slugs and snails. It has a soft body and a powerful, parrot like beak used for ripping apart its prey. The Octopus is considered one of the most intelligent invertebrates around. While intelligence is hard to define even in humans, what we do know is that Octopus have the ability to learn quickly and retain this information to use again.

They have been known to repeatedly squeeze into fishermen’s crab traps, eat the crabs and get out again! They have the largest brain to body size ratio of any invertebrate known to man and have a complex central nervous system with a nerve cord running down the centre of each arm. Giant Pacific Octopus are often found in areas with rocky boulders and reefs, where they can find shelter and make themselves a den. They are the largest of the Octopus species and they can live up to 4 years on average.

S.E.A. Aquarium - Indo-pacific Bottlenose Dolphin 550x268px

Indo-pacific Bottlenose Dolphin

Closely related to the common bottlenose dolphin, the Indo-Pacific bottlenose dolphin is smaller and slimmer than its cousin, although it has a longer and thinner beak. These intelligent and social animals live in small groups, usually consisting of mostly females and calves along with juveniles. The adult males typically form strong bonds amongst each other. We can identify individual dolphins by looking at the dorsal fin located on their backs. The dorsal fins are unique to each dolphin, much like human fingerprints!

Dolphins are able to make a wide range of whistles and clicking sounds to recognize and call each other. Each dolphin even has its own unique sound called a ‘signature whistle’, given to them by their mother at birth. Their visibility underwater may be limited but they are able to visualise objects using echolocation, very similar to what bats use to navigate when flying. Dolphins also have excellent hearing, with the ability to hear around 7 times better than humans.

S.E.A. Aquarium - Goliath Grouper 1366x666px

Goliath Grouper

What you see is what you get, all 2.5m long and 400kg of it. The Goliath Grouper is kind of like a giant, maybe only second to whales. And the saltwater fish is proud to inform you that it is almost as heavy as the average Harley Davidson motorcycle.

It opens its large mouth and quivers its body to ward off intruders who roam into its caves, shipwrecks and ledges. It can also darken or lighten its skin tone to hide from predators such as the dastardly Great Barracuda. Marine biologists agree that the Goliath Grouper is critically endangered because of overfishing, its slow growth rate, and the loss of habitats.

S.E.A. Aquarium - Seahorse 550x268px


Seahorses are truly unique, and not just because of their unusual equine shape. Unlike most other fish, they are monogamous- they chose one mate until death do them part. Rarer still the male carries the unborn young in a pouch and 'gives birth' to fully formed, miniature seahorses. These tooth-less, stomach-less fish must eat constantly to stay alive. Seahorses have a prehensile tail, which has been adapted to grasp or hold objects to prevent them from being washed away by strong currents and waves.

Swimming looks effortless as they propel themselves through the water using a tiny fin that beats up to 35 times per second. Seahorses have excellent eyesight and their eyes are able to work independently on either side of their head. This means they can look forwards and backwards at the same time! This is particularly useful as they hunt for food by sight.
