The family of 4 Harbour seals and the mob of meerkats are always looking for visitors to say hi to. Just arrived at the aquarium is a waddle of 4 female Humboldt penguins, only the second group of Humboldts who are on display in Scotland! They can even be seen swimming through underwater windows so you are really up close!
