Sharks, stingrays avoid Atlanta's icy roads

Posted: Updated:

ATLANTA (AP) - A rolling tank of sharks and stingrays heeded warnings and fared far better than Atlanta drivers stranded by this week's ice and snow storm.

The specialized truck with life-support systems was scheduled to make a cross-country trek from the Florida Keys to a new aquarium opening next month in Concord, N.C.

Pollyanna Falk of Spark Strategic Ideas said the Sea Life aquarium had planned to introduce the animals at a media event Thursday, but that was postponed since the truck's route would have taken it through metro Atlanta.

She said the delivery company heeded warnings about treacherous roads Wednesday and the trip was postponed.

Falk doesn't believe the truck made it to Georgia, so it was never stuck in metro Atlanta's epic traffic jam that began Tuesday afternoon and stretched into Wednesday.
