So who else is looking forward to the new Two Oceans Aquarium predator exhibit?
The new predator exhibit will contain 1.5 million litres of seawater and will be six metres in depth. A single acrylic panel, supplied by Clax Italia in Italy and measuring nine metres long and four metres wide, will provide a seamless window into the exhibit. “The most exciting aspect of this new exhibit is the 10 metre complete full tunnel,” said Dr. Pat. “We are thrilled that this will be incorporated as many of our visitors over the years have been somewhat disappointed with the half tunnel on the current I&J Predator Exhibit.
“Some of the species will include spotted eagle rays, honeycomb rays, smooth hound and spotted gully sharks as well as Yoshi the loggerhead turtle and Cannelloni the green turtle. “I am particularly excited about the possibility of displaying skipjack and longfin tuna. In the early days of the Aquarium we displayed these fast-swimming fish, but the ragged-tooth sharks ate them! This time they will be safe as the raggies will be in a different display”, said Michael.”
