Southern Company River Scout

 

Flash Slideshow Rivers are a source of life for animals, people and cultures throughout the world. In the Southern Company River Scout gallery, you will discover a wide diversity of animals found in the rivers of Africa, South America, Asia and right here in Georgia.

Albino alligators inhabit the River Scout waters, while an emerald tree boa lounges on a branch nearby. Around the corner, kids can safely "enter" an area filled with piranha and get a close-up look at the razor sharp teeth of these voracious predators.

The highly sociable Asian small-clawed otter is sure to spark interest. All of these animals, and more, are presented in a themed environment of waterfalls, logjams and a simulated meandering North American river that flows over your head! More important, you will come away with a greater appreciation of the need to protect freshwater environments everywhere.
