The Aquarium welcomed new residents in 2013 when a waddle of 4 female Humboldt penguins were transferred from the Seaview Wildlife Encounter in the Isle of Wight and are now permanent residents at the coastal attraction. They were quickly followed by the arrival of a very rare and what is Scotland’s largest, Alligator Snapping Turtle, six Southern Stingrays and three baby Bearded Dragons who hatched at the Aquarium too! Also recently arriving is two baby American Alligators - the only pair of American Alligators in Scotland and only the second pair in the UK.
Get up close and personal with daily interactive demonstrations which include seal, meerkat and penguin feeding and a rockpool ramble.
