Rainforest Adventure!

Can you hear that? An adventure is calling!

Are you feeling brave enough to trek through the Amazon?

Ranger Andy invites you to discover our brand new Rainforest Adventure! A storm has hit SEA LIFE London and Ranger Andy needs your help to unearth what lies beneath the surface in the Amazon.

To date, at least 40,000 plant species, 427 mammals (e.g. jaguars or anteaters), 1300 birds (e.g. happy eagle or toucans), 378 reptiles (e.g. boas) more than 400 amphibians and around 3000 freshwater fishes, including the piranha, have been found in the Amazon.

Immerse yourself in a world of creepy crawlies, charming crocs and curious critters. Come just centimetres away from the Chilean rose tarantula and race our colony of leafcutter ants to find the queen, before watching the feeding frenzy of the UK's biggest collection of Piranhas!

In this landscape food can be plentiful.

During the wet season, rivers flood the rainforest floor where fruits, nuts and seeds fall. When the dry season returns some fish are tapped in ever-decreasing, muddy pools without food, with little oxygen and no way of escaping predators.

On the river, predators can appear from any direction, above or below the water. You've got to be tough to make it in this habitat. Many rainforest creatures are big and toothy but sometimes it's the smallest and most harmless-looking animals which can pack the deadliest punch!

An adventure awaits, so what are you waiting for? Guarantee your space as one of our first explorers and buy your tickets now to join Ranger Andy in this tropical jungle!

The farmers of the insect world

Leaf-cutter ants grow their own food in underground fungus farms. Pieces of leaves are carried hundreds of metres, with each ant carrying a piece up to 50 times its own body weight!

 

Rescued Terrapins

The names terrapin, turtle, and tortoise can cause confusion. Turtles are sea chelonians, tortoises are land chelonians, and terrapins are freshwater chelonians that spend some time on land.

Do you have what it takes?

We need the toughest of explorers to face our rainforest, and you can take a peak at our checklist below to see if you have what it takes to #BravetheBugs:

Croc

1. You must be bold enough to come face to fang with some creepy crawlies!

2. You’ll need to be patient enough to go croc’ spotting
Can you spot our crocodile giving you his best croco-smiles? We’re home to a West African Dwarf Crocodile and you can see if you can spot him lurking silently in the water, or basking in the sun. Can you see his teeth? Unlike alligators, these guys have teeth that stick out even when their mouths are closed. Crikey!

Red Piranha

3. You’ve got to have a bit of BITE to keep up with our piranha’s feeding frenzy!
With the UK’s biggest collection of Piranhas residing here at SEA LIFE London, you’re sure to have an eye-full when it comes to feeding times. Although these guys love a feast- their stomach is only as big as their eye ball!

4. You’ll need to bring along your best pair of binoculars
Not all of our creatures are so big and fierce – we also have the small and mighty! Check out our colony of leaf cutter ants. Only millimetres long, these guys can carry up to 50 times their body weight – that’s the equivalent of us carrying a van! Blimey.
Each ant has their own role in the colony: Nurses, foragers, gardeners, trash handlers, a little bit like our society. Can you spot who’s who?

Boy At Fish Tank Rainforest

5. You’ll need a great sense of adventure!

The rainforest isn’t for the faint hearted, but it sure is going to be a wild journey that we want you to be a part of! So if you’re ready to face the fangs, gawk at the biggest feeding frenzy and snap up the chance to meet our croc
