Explorer’s den at The Deep

Date Posted: 05/03/2011

A new attraction now open at The Deep will enable young visitors to explore elements of the Amazon Rainforest.

The Amazon Explorers’ Den will feature live insects and carnivorous planets, in addition to a live link to the Brazilian Amazon, where The Deep sponsors a ranger.

Children and family groups will see real bugs from the spectacular habitat, including horsehead grasshoppers, black beauty stick insects and bulls head cockroaches; and can go virtual birdwatching in Brazil through the den’s webcam which provides live links to the Brazilian rainforest.

The Hull-based aquarium is home to more than 3,500 fish, including sharks and rays. Groups of ten or more people are entitled to discounted entry, with a free organiser place for parties of 20 plus. Free coach parking is available, along with fast track entry.
