Brilliant time tonight at one of SEA LIFE London Aquarium’s ‘After Dark’ events.
Here we are with Phoenix the sea turtle, who as you can see was more than happy to pose for photos with us. Phoenix is a curvy girl, weighing in at 23 stones, and at the youthful age of 17 has another 70 or years or so as the centre of attention to look forward to. Her other half, Boris, was asleep at the other end of the tank and is apparently much more camera-shy (unlike his namesake).
I love this place. Home to all sorts of creatures from our seas, rivers and oceans, some of them are so beautiful that you catch your breath as they swim past. You could come here over & over again, yet each time come away feeling that you’ve learned something new. Fun, enlightening and educational – the perfect blend.
