Georgia Aquarium

This past weekend, I had the opportunity to visit the Georgia Aquarium in Atlanta. It was very cool. Lots of fish of all different varities. They had penguins, sea lions, otters, pirahanas, enormous grouper (ie 500 pounds) that would stare out the aquarium directly at you. One highlight was the whale sharks. These creatures are enormous. I believe the ones that they had were about 16 feet long. Allegedly, they will grow up to 60 feet. They are the only known whale sharks which live outside the wild.
