The Mistress and Gilad in front of “Tanks A Lot,” the Georgia Aquarium’s largest single exhibit.
Last week we went to the Georgia Aquarium with the in-laws, the Mistress of Sarcasm, and Gilad.
While the main attraction was the Titanic Aquatic exhibition, I also like to go look at the fishies, of which there are plenty.
There are little bitty fishies...
There are great big fishies...
There are fishies that don’t look like fishies...
And there are fishies that are not even fishies.
And then there’s my favorite...
Salmon. The Nova Scotia kind, here shown with Brie and capers on an English muffin.
More fishies below the fold.
Careful! He’d just as soon barb you as look at you.
Colorful little guys.
These are Giant Candiru, horrifying parasitical fish that lodge in the urethrae of hippopotamuses. Actually, I just made that up. But it’s something to think about, eh?
Catching some rays.
Sea anemones. Not fish, not plants. Coelenterates!
Giant Japanese crabs. Infestations may be resolved through the use of Permethrin in the extra-large economy size.
I forget what these dudes are called.
I forget what these dudes are called, too...but they live in the same tank with that damned octopus. So I’m guessing they’re freaked out most of the time.
Beluga whale. Looks like a sex toy for the 50 Foot Woman.
