AvatarBy Leonard Ho 7 years agoNo Comments

Seemingly just in time for Halloween, George Aquarium’s newest exhibit (now open to the public) is an excellent way to both educate and scare your friends and family members.

About Sea Monsters Revealed: Aquatic Bodies:

The new exhibition invites guests to see both outside and inside the bodies of the most remarkable and elusive aquatic life ever discovered. Deemed ‘sea monsters’ centuries ago by early oceanic explorers, the specimens in this exhibition help guests understand how these animals were designed for the deep. The exhibition includes a 6-foot-wide devil ray, a 15-foot-long mako shark and quite notably, an 18-foot-long, 3,000 pound whale shark. Many, including both the ray and whale shark, are species of which living examples can be viewed in Georgia Aquarium’s permanent habitats. All specimens in the exhibition are authentic, stunning examples of the mysteries which lie under the surface and beyond the shoreline.
