Shark Week


As part of the run up to this year's Shark Week, the Discovery channel's teamed with the Georgia Aquarium and embedded a live webcam in the world's largest shark tank. 

The 9.5 Olympic pool-sized (that's 6.3 million gallons) tank was originally built to contain Whale Sharks and is currently hosting the Ocean Voyager exhibit. Aside from the aquarium's seven shark species (including the whale variety), it also houses the only four captive manta rays in the United States. 

Viewers can peek in on the fish and watch the daily feedings until August 7. Shark Week begins July 31st on the Discovery Channel

Happy shark watching!
