Giant Japanese Spider Crabs Grip The Media’s Attention

Yesterday saw the launch of Sea Life Manchester’s brand new deep-sea attraction, ‘Lair of The Giant Crab’ and we were delighted to be on hand to tell the story with BBC Northwest Today.

Featuring two enormous Giant Japanese Spider Crabs, amongst other monster-sized sea creatures, the incredible new feature promises to be a hit with families.

Alongside the giant crabs, visitors will also see a Giant Pacific Octopus, the largest of all octopus species, and be invited to crawl amongst the fluorescent world of 100 floating moon jellyfish, in a brand new 360 degree doughnut tank.

Jenn McDonough, General Manager Manchester Cluster, Merlin Entertainments, said: “The fact that we’ve been able to provide a forever home for these amazing awe-inspiring creatures is just fantastic.

“It’s a monstrous milestone for us here at Sea Life Manchester, and we’re proud to be making a name for ourselves as experts in giant sea creature care.

“It’s incredible to be able to observe such remarkable creatures, and we’re certain that our guests will love them just as much as we do!”

‘Lair of the Giant Crab’ is included in the normal admissions price with tickets starting from £11.50.  Pre-booking is strongly advised to avoid disappointment.
