Seahorses

Seahorses is a curious group of creatures which all belong to the Syngnathidae family.

As members of the same family they share some interesting traits; their jaws are fused to form a straw-like snout, instead of scales they have thin skin stretched over a series of bony plates and they are slow swimmers.

Perhaps the coolest thing about this group is that the males brood their babies! A male Seahorse has a brooding pouch on its belly into which a female can place her eggs. After a few weeks when the babies are ready, the male Seahorse gives birth. He rocks back and forth like a rocking-horse whilst the tiny baby seahorses pop out from a small hole in his tummy.

Park operation during the winter

We may change the operation hours depending on the weather condition such as heavy snow, ice or low temperature. We hope you enjoy our winter friendly attractions and food when the cold weather arrives.
