The Mistress and Gilad

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...

Fishies 04

There are great big fishies...

Whale Shark

There are fishies that don’t look like fishies...

Leafy Seadragon

And there are fishies that are not even fishies.


And then there’s my favorite...

Novy and Brie

Salmon. The Nova Scotia kind, here shown with Brie and capers on an English muffin.

Edible fishies!

More fishies below the fold.

Artistic Catfish

Careful! He’d just as soon barb you as look at you.

Fishies 01

Colorful little guys.

Fishies 02

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?

Fishies 03

Catching some rays.

Fishies 05

Sea anemones. Not fish, not plants. Coelenterates!

Fishies 08

Giant Japanese crabs. Infestations may be resolved through the use of Permethrin in the extra-large economy size.

Fishies 09

I forget what these dudes are called.

Fishies 10

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.

Fishies 11

Beluga whale. Looks like a sex toy for the 50 Foot Woman.
