In early October, the Georgia Aquarium offered a sneak peek of its newest exhibit, called “Sharks! Predators of the Deep.” The lucky visitors, however, weren’t the VIPs you might expect. The aquarium partnered with the Atlanta Humane Society to open the exhibit to six canine visitors. And they dressed for the occasion too. The puppies explored the new gallery all while dressed up in shark costumes — fitting attire both for the upcoming holiday and for the exhibit itself.
A video of their visit was released by the aquarium.

The exhibit opened to the public last Friday, with a 20-foot-deep, 185-foot-long gallery featuring floor-to-ceiling windows. A cage dive is even available for the truly intrepid, though we don’t think the dogs took advantage of that option.
Named Aladdin, Alexis, Amy, Anastasia, Augie, and Aurora (see a theme here?), the puppies have all been adopted in the past few weeks, so unfortunately you won’t actually be able to call them your own. Other adoptable pets from the Humane Society, however, can be browsed online.
Tickets to the aquarium are available online, with entry to the shark exhibit included with General Admission.
