Whale Sharks at the Atlanta Aquarium

Chances to hunt fossil shark teeth are few and far between, so the family and I decided to take a trip to Atlanta to see the aquarium. The big draw is the enormous tank with four whale sharks! Since none of us had ever seen a whale shark in real life before, we were all really excited to go.

The biggest shark in the tank was a little over 20 feet long. In the wild, Whale Sharks can grow to over 40 feet long. It still amazes me that sharks as big as that only have teeth 1/4 inch long.

My video processing skills have improved a bit, too. Now I know how to get full HD footage up on Youtube - Enjoy!
