Sea Monsters Revealed: Aquatic Bodies, an extraordinary exhibition of plastinated sea creatures, made its public debut at Georgia Aquarium on September 27, 2013, unveiling a unique look at the mystery of the sea.

The new exhibition invites guests to see both outside and inside the bodies of the most remarkable and elusive sea creatures ever discovered. Deemed 'sea monsters' centuries ago by early oceanic explorers, the sea creatures in this exhibition help guests understand how these animals are designed for the deep. 

The exhibition includes a 6-foot-wide mobula ray, and an 18-foot-long, 3,000 pound whale shark! Many, including both the ray and whale shark, are species of which living examples can be viewed in Georgia Aquarium's permanent habitats. All sea creatures in the exhibition are authentic, stunning examples of the amazing animals under the surface and beyond the shoreline.

More than 18 full-body sea creatures will be on display, along with more than 150 individual organs and smaller sea creatures that define the biodiversity of the sea. All were carefully recovered in accordance with the highest animal protection standards. 

Access to Sea Monsters Revealed: Aquatic Bodies is included in admission with the purchase of a Total Ticket.
