See seahorses at the Lakes Aquarium!

Filed under Uncategorized

Some of the most mystical and majestic creatures in the world have joined others of their kind at Lake District visitor attraction, Lakes Aquarium, near Newby Bridge – just 25 minutes’ drive from Kendal.

The attraction has just welcomed a group of seahorses that had previously been living at Chester Zoo. Ten seahorses are now swimming, in their very unusual upright manner, alongside the seahorses Lakes Aquarium already had on display.

Many younger visitors to the attraction are mesmerised by the seahorses, whilst some parents are surprised to find that the creatures really exist and are not just a fantasy creature like the unicorn. This misconception is partly down to the creature’s unique nature as they are the only species in which the male becomes pregnant. Add to this their long snout, prehensile tail and their swimming stance and they really stand out from other marine life.

Lakes Aquarium’s seahorses can be seen lurking around reeds and grasses within their tank, but can be a little shy. This makes them even more interesting to the keen little eyes that want to spot them!

Those wishing to know more about seahorses and other marine creatures can take advantage of Lakes Aquarium’s free talks on Morecambe Bay and Rockpools. These are part of a talks programme also focusing on otters, the Lake tunnel and the rainforest.

Admission costs £8.95 for an adult day pass, £5.95 for a child aged 3-15 and from £26.95 for a family ticket. Up to 30%t can be saved by buying tickets online.
