Did you know that the Yellow Bellied Slider is a species of Terrapin, and can survive both in freshwater and on land?! They've become popular pets but, are unfortunately often released and some species are now illegal to keep!

Terrapins are cold blooded creatures, and can often be spotted basking in the sun to raise their body temperatures. This means that those released into the wild may not survive our cold British winters!

As they're not native to the UK, thereโ€™s also concern that they could impact on local ecosystems, through a number of factors such as predating on bird populations.

The Terrapins at SEA LIFE Manchester have all been rescued and we're helping Turtle Tally UK with their conservation project. If you spot any in the wild, you can submit your sightings here - www.turtletally.co.uk

Meet Bam Bam ๐Ÿก

Bam Bam is a Blackspotted Porcupinefish, who may be cute now but if he feels threatened he can rapidly suck in water to inflate, and the spines along his body stick outwards making him seem much more intimidating!

You can find him hanging out in Stingray Bay on your next visit!

Hi, We are booked in to come tomorrow but we're now in a tier 3 area (Lancashire). Are we still able to come or do we have to rearrange?
Hi I was due to do the stingray feed on 29/03/20 but due to the closure for Covid it was postponed. I have been trying to ring to see if this can be rearranged yet. Please can you advise. Thanks in anticipation
i have just booked two adult tickets for nov 7th. i would like to add two children to my booking but the date wont come up please advise.
๐ŸŸ๐Ÿ ๐Ÿก๐Ÿฆˆ๐Ÿ By baby 4 months old It is very wonderful thank you๐Ÿฆ€๐Ÿฆ๐Ÿข๐Ÿฆˆ๐ŸŸ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿณ๐Ÿก
Had a visit to sea life this afternoon with my young children and mum first ever visit for our little boy, but unfortunately we rushed through as we didnโ€™t feel comfortable, None of the visitors wore masks and no one stuck to social distancing. Very disappointed we will not be going back.
Just a little confused by the crayola kids go free vouchers. The adult kids go free tickets are ยฃ4.20 more than normal adults tickets so really although it's only ยฃ4.20 the child's ticket isn't free. Only spotted it as under 3s are free anyway so only need 1 kids go free ticket
Hi, I'm a mature student studying TV & radio at the University of Salford. Would there be someone available for a quick radio interview for a children's radio magazine programme? Due to the current situation this would be conducted over the phone if that's convenient. Thank you for any help you can give. Kind regards, Nathan R.
