Fish or Treat!" That’s the key phrase at Sea Life Michigan’s Halloween celebration this week at Great Lakes Crossing Mall.

You can see the 8th wonder of the world “Crabzilla”, a Japanese Spider Crab that can grow as big as an adult human!  Barney, one of those creepy crabby crawlies is in Auburn Hills for the holiday season. One day, his body could be as big as a basketball and his leg span could reach 18 feet, a haunting thought.

Smaller and less photogenic is the Halloween Moon crab, also in town for the holiday.

While some of the “Sea Life” exhibit regulars will be dressing up. The Hermit Crab for instance is currently wearing a conch shell for his Halloween costume. 

Amid the festive friendly aquatic animals in the touch pond, you’ll find fake fingers and spiders, a small part of a big “Sea Life” scavenger hunt.

For three days only (Tuesday, Saturday & Halloween) there will be underwater pumpkin carving in the ocean exhibit.

The event is called “Fish or Treat” and will offer many interactive fun opportunities every day from now until Halloween.  Kids in costume get $6 off admission!

Legoland will also host a week of Halloween fun.
