Cool Photos of the Georgia Aquarium
June 30, 2010 by Levi Novey
This past weekend I had the pleasure of visiting the Georgia Aquarium with my family. I managed to snag some very nice photos (like the saw shark above) that showcase amazing marine environments.
A lionfish. They are beautiful as can be, but exotic to the Georgia coast and tearing it up. They have no predators so we need to start eating them. One of the aquarium's better small exhibits in my honest opinion.
The coral reef section's big finish.
A gorgeous weedy scorpion fish. Great camouflage for surprising and stinging its prey.
My daughter attempts to bag a pacific nettle jellyfish. I'm glad their affections couldn't be exchanged.
A whale shark (the largest fish in the world) in what I think is the biggest aquarium tank in the world. It's really spectacular. If ever there was a claim that captivity paid off in its educational and emotional value--this is it. But you also can't help being incredibly sad for all of the souls inside.
