Sea Life and its neighbour Legoland Discovery Centre have teamed up to celebrate Christmas in an unusual way with star attraction Miranda, the intelligent octopus.
The animal care team at Sea Life know that clever creatures need constant stimulation, so they asked for help from the team at Legoland who created the colourful calendar made from Lego. Each day a new door can be opened, but Miranda has to find the right one. With tempting pieces of mackerel as an incentive, Miranda successfully opened her December 1 window yesterday.
See for yourself as Miranda gets her tentacles to grips with her first challenge.
Visitors to Sea Life can see Miranda and her advent calendar at 2pm on any Tuesday, Thursday or Saturday from now until Christmas Eve.
