Our Edge of Rainforest takes you on a journey through the mangrove swamps, home to our deadly piranhas and archer fish – watch the archer fish shoot water out to catch their prey!

Head over the wooden footbridge and look down upon our large tropical display – teeming with colourful species weaving in and out of the coral displays.

Did you spot our blind cave fish? They don’t have any eyes because they live in dark caves. Fascinating!

Before you leave this area make sure you take a good look at our collection of amphibians, including the deadly poison dart frogs, they’re full of colour and vibrancy and if you listen carefully you can even hear them too!
