    Visited the other week,to have a look at the new Penguin exhibit and see how the Scalloped Hammerheads were doing,after having a good look in the main tank and couldn't see them,I asked a member of staff in the tunnel and they said that they had both died earlier,in the year after a period of not eating!Also they now no longer have a Leopard Shark either.

    If my PC had worked properly I would have beaten Nisha to that news. It was on BBC Midlands this afternoon. The keeper said something like he will be a nice addition to our breeding and conservation programmes, we breed a lot of endangered species at the sealife centres.

    So, Nisha, I bet that the next time we both have the same news, I will be the first poster. :D

    Visited last Sat 31/10/2015 and noticed a lot of species that weren't labelled and again a lot of species incorrect on Zootierliste or missing from the list but I did enjoy my day as I hadn't visited a Sea Life Centre since a disaster visit to Blackpool's Centre many years ago

    Some more Gentoo's have arrived:

    A Colony of Canadian Gentoo Penguins have arrived here at the National SEA LIFE Birmingham!
    After migrating 4,268 miles from Calgary, a group of feathered additions have arrived at their icy new home.
    The Canadian colony of male and female Gentoos will join Ginny and the rest of our cheeky Gentoo Penguins.
