Have you ever wondered what and how we feed the incredible animals here at the Two Oceans Aquarium? Well, our daily Feeding Times are the perfect place to find out!
One of the most popular activities at the Aquarium, feeding times are opportunities to watch your favourite animals enjoy a delicious meal while you learn more about them.
Here are the animals that you can watch being fed weekly:
Arguably the most exciting feeding time at the Two Oceans Aquarium is of the ragged-tooth sharks in the Save Our Seas Foundation Shark Exhibit! Every Saturday at 12h00, our scuba divers enter the exhibit to feed our ragged-tooth sharks lots of yummy hake! Viewers at the impressive main window can ask questions and learn about the lifestyles of sharks.
The African penguins are some of the cutest residents at the Two Oceans Aquarium. Every day at 11h30 and 14h30, the colony is fed delicious meals of fish by our Penguin Keepers. And, while you watch the African penguins enjoy their meal, you can learn about their habits, lifestyles, and the risks they face in the wild.
Watch feeding time in the Penguin Exhibit at 11h30 and 14h30 daily.
The I&J Ocean Exhibit houses vibrant fish, majestic stingrays, and impressive musselcrackers. With its enormous viewing window, this exhibit is the best place to watch our scuba divers hand-feed the stingrays and larger fish. At 12h00 thrice weekly, the I&J Ocean Exhibitinhabitants are fed delicious meals by our divers while they answer any questions you may have from inside the Exhibit!
