Whale shark dies in Georgia Aquarium

One of the Georgia Aquarium's prized whale sharks has died. It was the second death of a popular exhibit at the aquarium in 10 days.

Ralph, one of four whale sharks at the 1-year-old aquarium, stopped swimming and was determined to be dead Thursday night, aquarium spokeswoman Donna Fleishman said.

The cause of death was not immediately determined, the AP says.

"Recently, he has not been eating well and has had some unusual swimming patterns," Fleishman said.

Ralph and Norton, the aquarium's other male whale shark, arrived in June 2005 from Taiwan, where they had been destined to become seafood. They were joined a year later by two females, Alice and Trixie.

Gasper, one of the Georgia Aquarium's five beluga whales, was euthanized Jan. 2 after months of declining health.
