Got kids keen to know about the biggest, tallest, and fastest? Take your kids on a fact-finding hunt at S.E.A. Aquarium’s Ocean Record Breakers exhibition, which is all about the fun superlatives of the sea

Little adventurers have always loved S.E.A. Aquarium because it’s home to more than 100,000 marine animals from over 1,000 species — everything from majestic manta rays to a myriad of sea jellies. Get your kids excited about sea life with our talking points below – the perfect starting point for a fact-finding hunt. Like, did you know which species of shark is the only shark known to come to the surface for air? No? The sand tiger sharks – S.E.A Aquarium’s newest residents! Also known as gray nurse sharks, they store air in their stomachs, which allows them to float motionless in the water, seeking prey.
