Our amazing interactive Rockpools can be found in every SEA LIFE. Are you brave enough to touch a sea anemone, starfish or hermit crab? Find out during your visit! Rockpools are made from water left behind when the tide goes out.
Lots of different creatures live in these shallow habitats – they all need to be tough to adapt to different temperatures and waves crashing overhead.
If you’re exploring Rockpools at the beach, remember these important rules:
Safety first: Make sure you’re with an adult and only explore when the tide is going out. Wear non-slip shoes.
Be kind to creatures: Put any rocks back carefully and try not to the disturb creatures you find. Never take them home with you!
If a starfish loses an arm, it can grow back.
Hermit crabs live in sea snail shells!
BIG AND SMALL
Sea anemones can have more than 100 stinging tentacles!
