Terrapins bob for pumpkins this Hallow-marine!

Monday 26 October 2015

 

Aquarists at the SEA LIFE London Aquarium gave their animal enrichment programme a seasonal theme today, by engaging an energetic group of terrapins in a game of traditional apple-bobbing – with a twist – to celebrate Halloween.

The 19-strong terrapin troop were given mini pumpkins as a Halloween-themed treat by aquarist Jessica Kuzmanoska, who commented: “The terrapins are very lively animals, so this game will keep them active and engage them in a new way – plus give our visitors something new to see for our ‘Hallow-marine’ week.” 

A special ‘Hallow-marine’ themed trail is currently running at the south bank attraction, where visitors are invited to spot the ‘bogeyfish’ of the deep. For more information click here
