During half-term next week, the Blue Reef Aquarium in Portsmouth has a range of activities with a shark theme.

The week will feature a range of fun for the family from prehistoric super sharks like megalodon to shark and ray feeds, as well as conservation talks and workshops.

Palaeontologist Neil Morris, who specialises in prehistoric shark species, will be at the aquarium on Monday and Tuesday to give a series of talks about extinct species.

Jenna MacFarlane from Blue Reef said: ‘Sharks are always one of the first things visitors want to see when they come to the aquarium.

‘This event will provide visitors of all ages with a real insight into these fascinating fish and their truly extraordinary history.’
