Sealife Creatures Get Into The Halloween Spirit
The creatures at Sea Life Scarborough have been enjoying some spooktacular enrichment activities to get into the Halloween Spirit.
Barbara, or Babs as she's affectionately known by staff, is a Giant Pacific Octopus, the biggest and one of the most intelligent species of Octopus on the planet. It is estimated she is as clever as a guide dog which means she's given enrichment activities to keep her brain active. It took her next to no time to figure out the Halloween Puzzle her food was hidden inside.
Over at Penguin Island there was a grinning intruder in the enclosure as the birds were presented with a Pumpkin full of fish. Skipper, the most curious of our resident penguins was the first to investigate and bagged himself a fishy treat.
Sealife Scarborough's Halloween Pumpkin Hunt starts Thursday 26th October and runs until the day itself. Guests are invited to find hidden pumpkins to win a prize. On the 31st there will be also be a 'Yucky Dip' where children can pick a trick or a treat. Those lucky enough to find a treat will win free entry and the tricksters will be given a challenge to complete around the aquarium. After diving into an underwater adventure, head upstairs to the cafe for witchy stories and spooky arts and crafts!
