This exhibit offers you the opportunity to get hands-on with some of the mysterious and colourful animals living in British Columbia's tidepools.
As its common name implies, the giant sea cucumber is the largest of roughly 30 sea cucumber species in British Columbia. Don't let its spikey appearance fool you...
In the centre of the sea anemone, surrounded by sticky tentacles, is its mouth… and its anus. Imagine a bag with tentacles on top — that’s the basic sea anemone.
Explore this tidepool with a gentle touch. Do touch very gently with washed hands (no sunscreens or other chemicals), using your pinky finger to discover what the animals feel like.
