Aquarium is expecting a big delivery
ATLANTA (AP) - April 12, 2012 (WPVI) -- The world's largest aquarium is expecting the pitter patter of giant fins.
The Georgia Aquarium has a pregnant beluga whale.
Mom-to-be Maris got pregnant naturally, which is rare for belugas in captivity.
Her calf is due by mid-June, after a 14-month pregnancy.
And this will be no little baby.
Aquarium officials say junior could weigh up to 50 pounds.
