SEA LIFE Blackpool Mourns Passing of a Marine World Giant

Management and staff at SEA LIFE Blackpool are currently mourning the loss of a real marine world superstar.


Big Daddy, the biggest captive Japanese Spider Crab in the world, died peacefully in his display recently, aged approximately 80 years old.


Christened after the professional late wrestling star Shirley Crabtree – once a regular in the ring at The Blackpool Tower – Big Daddy arrived at SEA LIFE Blackpool in 2013.
