Deep Sea World, Scotland's national aquarium, is launching a new spotters' guide for younger visitors this weekend (Saturday, January 9th) with the help of their newest recruit 'Discovery Dave'.
The North Queensferry wildlife attraction is hoping their fun new marine explorer character will encourage more youngsters to get inspired by the underwater world.
Throughout January, every visitor to the aquarium will receive a free copy of 'Discovery Dave's' Underwater Safari Spotters Guide.
Deep Sea World's Kerry Myers said: "Discovery Dave is challenging our visitors to travel the underwater tunnel and help him spot all the sharks, fish and lobsters which live in our main tank.
"The Spotters Guide also features a shark wordsearch and is part of a series of new missions featuring 'Discovery Dave' which are aimed at introducing children to the wonders of the deep in a fun and engaging way," she added.
At 112 metres long Deep Sea World boasts the largest underwater walkway tunnel in Europe.
Its main Underwater Safari display holds 4.5 million litres of seawater, making it the largest temperate marine exhibit in the UK, and is home to one of Europe's largest collections of sharks and rays, as well as hundreds of other marine life including conger eels, crabs and lobsters.
Stars of the display are the giant, three-metre-long sand tiger sharks, the Critically Endangered angel sharks and the graceful eagle rays.
