Stopover - Atlanta

On my way back from Brazil to Europe I had a few hours stop over in Atlanta, USA.. Enough time to go and see the Atlanta Aquarium (it’s supposed to be olne of the biggest in the world).
And here’s a few shots from the Aquarium.

They have two really huge tanks 1. belonging to the Beluga Whales (Delphinapterus leucas) (They have four of these majestic beauties – 3 females and 1 male);

2. belonging to a wide range of fish from the open ocean including one Whale Shark (Rhincodon typus) (the biggest fish in the world) – Only three Aquariums in the world have enough space to house these gentle giants.

And to end here’s some more pics…

Here's an overall map of all the exhibits at the Aquarium. Courtesy their website.
