Today I am going to share the blues found at the Georgia Aquarium. It opened Nov. 23, 2005, and is the world's largest aquarium. Offering more than half a million square feet, covering 9 ½ acres and adjacent to the Centennial Olympic Park, the Georgia Aquarium in Atlanta, GA, is home to tens of thousands of animals including 500 species around the world. The Georgia Aquarium holds more than 8 million gallons of fresh and marina water, and also features 60 habitats including 12,000 square feet of viewing windows, topping a total of 328 tons of acrylic.
The largest exhibit measures 263 feet long x 126 feet wide x 33 feet deep at the maximum depth, holding 6.2 million gallons of water and housing four whale sharks and the only manta ray in the U.S. along with thousands of animals. The second largest exhibit holds 800,000 gallons of water and is home to three beluga whales. Other features include the 4-D theater, the Learning Loop and the world-class veterinary services and conservation medicine facility.
