A few weekends ago, we went to the Georgia Aquarium. If you’ve never been before. Wow. It’s huge. There are so many different aquatic animals and mammals.
This is the first time our family of four has gone. The girls LOVED it.
As soon as we walked in, the were mesmerized. They even attempted to touch the small sharks and rays in the touching pool. They would move their hands at the very last minute.
See, mesmerized. Fascinated. Asking a million questions.
And she finally got to see her favorite. A shark. The shark was what she was most excited to see.
After seeing most of the sections of the Aquarium, we headed upstairs to the Planet Shark: Predator or Pray The Exhibit.
Planet Shark features full-scale shark models, a huge collection of shark jaws, teeth and fossils and even some artifacts from the movie “Jaws.”
The coolest thing they have is a “frozen in time” display that features a real, frozen 700lb Bluefin Tuna and it’s natural predator a real, frozen 10ft adult Mako Shark
It was interesting to see all of the facts about shark attacks and how the media ads to those stories. Also, from the other side, information about over-fishing practices and it’s impact on the food chain.
There are no pictures or cell phones allowed in the exhibit.
We were given warning about the exhibit and that it might be scary. Honestly, we thought that the girls were too young to really understand, so we went ahead and brought them in. The way everything was displayed, in itself, was not scary. However, they did a really good job at setting the tone with intense colors of mood lighting and mood altering music. #1 got a little scared going through it.
