SEAQUARIUM WESTON WELCOMES ARRIVAL OF RED-BELLIED PIRANHA


Release Date: Monday 21 July 2014

Red bellied Piranha in ‘Rainforest River'
SeaQuarium Weston's Aquarist Team have this week introduced 7 Red Bellied Piranha into the 'Rainforest River Zone' within the main aquarium.  The new piranhas are somewhat dwarfed by the 3 resident piranhas that already inhabit the aquarium, the oldest of which is 15 years old!

The red-bellied piranha is one of many piranha species living in South American rivers in the Amazon River Basin, coastal rivers of northeastern Brazil and the basins of Paraguay and Parana in South America. Juveniles are silver in colour with dark spots, whereas adults have a reddish belly from which their name derives and when fully grown can be up to 33cm long and weigh up to 3.5kg.

Displays Manager, Adam Walters said, “Although piranhas are thought to be ferocious predators that tear live creatures limb from limb, they are actually primarily scavengers that use their powerful jaws and razor sharp teeth to eat other fish, insects, invertebrates and even plants.”

SeaQuarium including the Rainforest River Zone is open from 10.00am daily with talks, feeds and presentations taking place at regular intervals throughout the day with the ‘Main Feed’ daily at 2.30pm.
 
SeaQuarium is located on Weston-super-Mare seafront and standard admission price is £8.50 for adults, £6.50 for children 3 -15 years and £7.50 for concessions. All talks, feeds, presentations are included as part of the Standard Admission Prices with tickets valid all day with a hand stamp re-entry.
