From the native creatures of the Lakes like the menacing pike, perch and sticklebacks, to the Eyeless Cave Fish from Mexico, there is a host of underwater wildlife to see. Marvel at huge Cod, Rays and British Sharks, or peer into the tiny world of rock pools where Hermit Crabs, sift the shells for new homes and camouflaged flatfish and pipefish hide amongst the seaweed. You can even meet mischievous Asian Otters in their specially designed paddy field home.

Visit the Virtual Diving Bell, to encounter huge bull sharks, crocodiles and hippos, recreated using the latest CGI. Refreshments are available from Oscar's Café and Restaurant which offers home-made soup, open sandwiches and jacket potatoes with a choice of delicious fillings.
