The largest Amazonian species we have on display are the Tiger Shovelnose Catfish and Pacu and Oscar Cichlids. We also have Deadly Piranhas on display, the Piranhas teeth are razor sharp like the edge of a saw. They are attracted to blood so injured animals or fish are often attacked by shoals of piranha. Large shoals of piranhas can strip a cow to the bone within a few hours.
There are three species of shark in the tank, from the Indo-pacific Oceans and the coast of Australia. The smaller species are the black-tip reef shark and the white-tip reef sharks. The largest and most fearsome sharks are The Sand Tiger shark, these can grow up to 3 metres and weigh between 100-150kg.
Other flatfish found in the Touch Tank are turbot, halibut, plaice and flounder.
