In the low-lit tanks of The Deeps Twilight Zone, other-worldly oceanic beasties include giant Japanese spider crabs, giant Pacific octopus, wolf eels (pictured), nautilus, Norway lobster, spot prawns and jellyfish.

Theres also a virtual coelacanth - the real thing, prehistoric in the extreme, is out there but very hard to find. An audio-visual theatre provides an introductory presentation on life at depth in the oceans.

The Twilight Zone was completed as part of a £6.8 million extension including a learning suite, cafà and restaurant. The gift shop, reception and queuing arrangements have been improved.

The aquarium is situated on the shore of the Humber river, in Hulls city centre. The Deep - 01482 381000, www.thedeep.co.uk
