ATLANTA (AP) - The Georgia Aquarium is giving visitors the chance to peer inside the bodies of giant sea creatures.

The exhibit, "Sea Monsters Revealed: Aquatic Bodies," opens Friday. It includes the preserved bodies of shark and other animals with their flesh stripped away to expose muscles, bones and organs underneath.

The exhibit is similar to the popular "Bodies" and "Body Worlds" exhibits of dissected human bodies that have toured the world.

The show includes 18 big sea creatures along with more than 150 individual organs and smaller animals.

The preserved specimens do not include animals from the Georgia Aquarium. The aquarium says all of the animals in the "Sea Monsters Revealed" exhibit were recovered from fisheries and other sources in accordance with animal protection standards.
