Official description

Beautiful but deadly sea creatures will be on show during the “Magnificent Shellfish: Ocean Predators” fair, at Seacon Bangkae, from tomorrow until March 22.

Held in collaboration with Thai Life Insurance, visitors can explore the mysteries of various types of shellfish and dangerous, poisonous deep-ocean predators and their defence mechanisms.

Among them are the cone snail, whose shell is a toxic “harpoon”; armatus, whose protruding lower teeth make it a major rival of the piranha; and sea wolves, which have strong, crushing teeth all over their upper jaws. There will also be several species born with unique features for self-defence and hunting, such as electric eels, which can generate a shock of up to 600 volts; the electric catfish, which can strike with 350 volts; and the scorpionfish, which produces venomous mucus. Other predators on display include moray eels, lionfish, boxfish, frogfish and the dog-faced puffer.

Presented under a “Magnificent Maldives” theme, the fair also gathers many kinds of beautiful sea creatures such as blacktip reef sharks, long-spined sea urchins, boxer shrimp, Tridacna giant clams, murex shells and octopuses.

Shell collectibles will be showcased, and souvenirs from the Bangkok Seashell Museum will also be for sale.

Seacon Bangkae is on Phetkasem Road.
