Green Sea Turtle
Our Giant Green Turtle arrived on the 26th March 2012! He has been brought here to help highlight the plight of sea turtles around the world. Ernie, as he has been named by the staff, enjoys a diet of broccoli, lettuce, cabbage, kale, squid and whiting. He likes snoozing by the tunnel and being cleaned by the other fish inside the display.
He has been staying with our friends over at SEA LIFE Great Yarmouth whilst we have been closed... We've spoken to him and he's pretty excited about returning to his new home. Ernie will be making the short journey over to us at the end of September and we can't wait to have him back!
