Sea Life welcomes new spooky jellyfish

Visitors will be mesmerised and captivated by the new Upside Down Jellyfish –  the latest spooky arrivals to Sea Life Manchester.

Along with the spectacular Upside Down Jellyfish, which are in an array of striking colours, the additional bloom of Sea Nettles are sure to spook visitors out this Halloween, as they swim like ghosts through water and float mysteriously around the tank.

Delve in deep and learn all about the Jellyfish that are 95% water and don’t even have brains, eyes, hearts or blood! Having been identified over 500 million years ago and with over 350 different species, these creatures are established and beautiful in their own right.

The jellyfish are housed in a special ‘Kreisel’ display which maintains a circular current to keep their delicate bodies away from the tank’s hard surfaces.

Curator Dan McLaughlan commented: “Guests will learn so much about the Jellyfish by coming along to the centre, including the fact that they are one of the oldest types of creature in the world and a group of Jellyfish is actually called a bloom!”

Families are invited to see the Jellyfish all year round but with a special appearance at the Spooky Seas event, running from now until 31st October.
