Livingstone the explorer is also excited as a group of Horseshoe crabs will be joining the displays just in time for half term. Staff are currently working hard getting their new enclosure ready. Aquarist Gaz Mead says ‘We are excited to have these wonderful creatures on display, the Horseshoe crab is considered a living fossil as it has been around for over 220 million years, which makes it older than dinosaurs. In that time the Horseshoe crab hasn’t changed much as it still almost identical to its ancient ancestors’. Gaz added ‘ Horseshoe crabs are unlike other species, with blue blood, ten eyes and five pairs of legs they really are strange creatures. They are also more closely related to spiders and scorpions than they are to crabs and shrimp’.
