We’re going on a fact finding hunt! National Geographic’s Ocean Wonders at S.E.A. Aquarium

Post Category - PlayPlay - Post Category - AdventuresAdventures

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.

There are a lot of fun facts that curious little minds can absorb at National Geographic’s first ever Ocean Record Breakers exhibition, on from now until 20 May 2018. We’ve made your job easy, mamas and dads, by putting together some fun questions to get your kids thinking – a fun, fact-finding hunt!

S.E.A. Aquarium Talking Points For Sassy Parents

Psst! Give your kids a chance to find the facts themselves; it is a fact-finding hunt after all! Kids can visit the Ocean Record Breakers exhibit right before the Shipwreck Tunnel and also try their hand at interactive quizzes.

  1. What’s the fastest shark in the world and how fast can it go?
    The Shortfin Mako – it can swim up to 50km an hour!
  2. What’s the largest fish in the ocean?
    The Whale Shark – it can reach up to 20 metres! Wowza!
  3. This fish can swim as fast as a car (up to 97km/hr) what is it?
    The Blue Marlin – and it can reach up to 4.3 metres in length!
  4. What’s the heaviest bony fish in the sea?
    The Mola Mola – aka Ocean Sunfish weighing in at 2300kg!
  5. A blue whale can be as heavy as how many elephants – 10, 20 or 40 elephants?
    40 elephants – that’s around 180,000kg!
  6. Which animal has the largest eyes in the animal kingdom?
    The Giant Squid – their eyes are 25cm in diameter– if you’re a kid, that’s nearly as big as your head!
  7. Which is the largest predatory fish and has 300 teeth at any one time?
    The Great White Shark.

Kid Friendly Features

– Weekend (and public holiday) kids’ activity stations. These educational activity stations manned by staff at S.E.A Aquarium teach kids about marine life and conservation in a fun interactive way. There’s one station that teaches kids about the threats to the endangered poison arrow frog via a fun flip card game, another station gets kids to label a seahorse’s anatomy and another teaches kids about shark buoyancy using different liquids in bottles – how cool is that?

– Fish feeding daily at 12 pm, 2 pm and 4 pm.

What are your weekend plans with the kiddos? Mine are usually spent trying to find outdoor activities for my boys to expend their energy. One of our favourites is spending time by the sea, in fact most of our family holidays are in tropical locations by the beach. My boys have never seen snow so I’ve been thinking I should take them somewhere cold for a change! Any ideas where? Don't forget to check IG stories to see what I am up to tonight!

What’s your personal mama style? Having been part of a fashion business over the last 10 years (alongside my mum and sister) at @luxe_fashion_boutique, I have seen so many trends come and fade away. I love classic and timeless maxi dresses which defines my style and personality. I also prefer to invest in quality pieces that will last the test of time. ⠀
