Ga. Aquarium expecting rare beluga whale birth
I was fortunate to get a behind the scenes look at Atlanta Aquarium as a professional courtesy. These whales are absolutely amazing.
ATLANTA — The world's largest aquarium is expecting the pitter patter of giant fins. The Georgia Aquarium has a rare beluga whale pregnancy, the first mammal to conceive at the downtown Atlanta attraction since it opened in 2005.
The mother, Maris, got pregnant naturally — not through insemination — which is rare for belugas in captivity.
