    I encourage anyone in the Southeast to drive to atlanta and see the Georgia Acquarium. Since many of the days are booked, its probably best to book revervations. Beware, the food there is rediculously expensive. And you'll definitely have to fight some serious Atlanta traffic. You get to go through metal dectors, so they took my Spiderco at the door, and I had to get it back when I left the Acquarium. I have hundreds of pics, I'll post some up. All I can say is the pictures don't even come close to caputring it. There one tank with 6 million gallons, and the largest viewing window in North America, which is made from 2 foot thick Acrillic. I could go on and on rambling about stuff, but I'll just post up some pics now :D

    The same way you pet all the other creatures, and the people who work there kept on loudly verbalizing it "VERY GENTLY, WITH JUST TWO FINGERS".. kinda cracked me up at times :haha:
