Seahorse
Kingdom

Seadragons and Seahorses may sound like mythical creatures
but here you can see just how real they are!
In this kingdom Seahorses grip at seagrass with their curly tails
and suck up tiny shrimp with their straw-like snouts.
Seadragons bob slowly past the window; with deep purple stripes, splatters of vibrant orange
and seaweed-like appendages... you've never seen anything like these before!

*Our Seadragons can currently only be viewed during our Behind the Scenes tour as it is now their breeding period.

Male seahorses, seadragons and pipefish are the only male animals to give birth!

Rainforest Adventure!

If you're feeling brave enough, step out of the ocean and into the hot and humid rainforest to experience what life is like beneath the tropical treetops. Winding through the roots and tree trunks, rainforest rivers are home to some spectacular fish. 

 

Creatures of the Rainforest

Look for the Blind Cave Fish who have no eyes, Piranhas with ruby-red bellies and three West African Dwarf Crocodiles who will give you a menacing smile just snapping distance away. Poison Dart Frogs leap through the foliage and monster Red Tailed Catfish and Black Pacu lurk in the depths.

Did you know?

Around 58,0000 square miles of forest are lost each year to deforestation. That's equivalent to 36 football pitches each minute!

Conservation Cove

Conservation is at the heart of what we do at SEA LIFE London.
There are plenty of opportunities to learn about
the threats facing marine life and what you
can do to help as you explore with us.

In this area you find out more about what SEA LIFE
and the SEA LIFE Trust are doing to help threatened
marine life and perhaps help us out yourself by signing
one of our petitions or picking up
a free sustainable seafood guide.

Around 75% (that's three quarters)
of the world’s coral reefs
are threatened by human activity.
