After years in the making, Georgia Aquarium's highly-anticipated new shark exhibit — SHARKS! Predators of the Deep — is finally open. 

The habitat opened on October 23 and visitors were able to gaze in awe at one of the largest shark exhibits in the world. 

The Aquarium has been preparing for this day for a long time.

The exhibit is lined with floor-to-ceiling windows so you can get face-to-face with one of the most feared animals on the planet.

I mean, you can really get eye-to-eye with the sharks. 

The habitat is home to hammerheads, silvertips, sand tigers, silky sharks, and tiger sharks.

The underwater predators live in an enormous 20-foot-deep, 185-foot-long habitat that holds 1.2 million gallons of saltwater. 

The goal of the exhibit is "to have guests leave with a deeper understanding of all shark species and a respect to protect them."

So there are opportunities to learn about the sharks as you journey through the exhibit.
