    Georgia aquarium is celebrating the return of Shark Week with a web cam on their amazing 6.3 million gallon whale shark tank! I've been staring at this all day. Hat-tip to 3reefer Hydronaut!

    You are watching live video of the "Ocean Voyager" exhibit at the Georgia Aquarium in Atlanta, Ga. Stay tuned for live events beginning Sunday, July 31, including diver Q&A sessions and shark feedings.

    That is sweet! Can we just keep it on the front page? At least until they end broadcast.

    Cool. It would be such an honor to have a career working with these animals.


    I was talking with a friend about what it would be like to work on this aquarium. We started to wonder if anyone has ever been killed or even hurt by a shark in captivity? My gut tells me that the sharks are well fed, and so the need for them to attack is basically non-existent... but still curious.
