When planning your winter getaway, don’t miss one of my favorite Atlanta attractions, the Georgia Aquarium. The world premiere of Planet Shark: Predator or Prey has been held over until February 20th, 2011. This is the world’s largest out of water shark exhibit, complimenting the Georgia Aquariums’ existing collection of 77 live sharks, representing 14 species. This 10,000 sq. ft. exhibit is divided into 10 galleries for your viewing pleasure.
Georgia Aquarium: Predator or Prey will educate you on Shark facts and fiction that has evolved over many decades. There are full scale shark models, cast from real specimens. View shark teeth, jaws and fossils dating back 350 million years. Also, you will have the opportunity to see a real frozen 700 lb. Bluefin Tuna and its natural predator, an adult Mako shark, also frozen. Hear stories of shark encounters told by survivors and shark experts. Learn about the Great White Shark satellite tagging program and other conservation efforts.
Most of all, you will leave the Georgia Aquarium with a better understanding of the sharks role in our oceans and the worlds ecosystems.
Before you return to our Atlanta Bed and Breakfast, be sure to visit The World of Coke and CNN Center which are just a stroll away from the Georgia Aquarium.
