Visitors to Deep Sea World in North Queensferry are being invited to meet their deadliest denizens of the deep over the autumn break (October 8-23).

‘Toxic Ten’ showcases a host of creepy critters ranging from terrifying tarantulas and scary scorpions to spooky stonefish and petrifying poison dart frogs.

Other feature creatures include stingrays, lionfish, pufferfish, foxfaced rabbit fish, snakes and millipedes. There will be two toxic creature encounters taking place every day plus two craft-making workshops designed for both adults and kids.

Nancy Sidhu, from Deep Sea World, said: “The aquarium is home to a wide selection of potentially deadly creatures from around the world.

“Toxic Ten gives visitors the opportunity to discover more about these dangerous animals and their fascinating lives.

“The daily talks and encounter sessions also enable our staff to talk about the threats many of them face in the wild and what we can all do to help conserve wildlife both globally and locally,” she added.

Located beneath the Forth Rail Bridge, Deep Sea World is Scotland’s national aquarium home to over 2,000 creatures – ranging from seahorses and stingrays to seals and sharks.

· ‘Toxic Ten’ is on daily from October 8 - 23 at Deep Sea World.
