New Exhibition 2014 : CLAWS
CRUSTY CREATURES OF THE DEEP STAR IN NEW SPECIAL EXHIBITION
An invasion of the crustacean kind is expected at the SEA LIFE London Aquarium in February 2014 as a new exhibition featuring some stunning species of crabs opens.
CLAWS will bring together a spectacular collection of the “B-movie monsters” of the marine world from the amazing Tasmanian king crab (which can reach a mass of 13 kg) to the humble blue lobster.
Built like miniature armoured tanks, these powerful crusty creatures of the deep are natural warriors and guests can inspect them at close quarters in a newly themed area featuring quirky displays designed to resemble giant crabs.
A giant mechanical claw shows the inner workings of a crab’s claw and interactive features enable guests to feel the hardness of their shells and the sharpness of the serrations on their claws. Plus a crawl-through tunnel display allows visitors to get right underneath some of these alien like animals and examine them from every angle. Add in fun and informative graphics and a 3D model and CLAWS adds up to a monster new addition to one of Paris’ most popular attractions.
And there’s also a whole aquarium to discover with thousands of sea creatures from seahorses to rare Green Sea turtles, 13 species of stunning sharks and baby stingrays in the Amozonia area.
