The gelatinous folds of an enormous Humboldt squid greet visitors in one corner while, overhead, an 18-foot whale shark is suspended in midflight. By turns fascinating and macabre, the creatures are part of a new show at the Georgia Aquarium called “Aquatic Bodies: Sea Monsters Revealed.”

Open this month at the downtown facility, the traveling exhibit is intended to stay in Atlanta for a year.

It showcases sea creatures that have been preserved with a technique called “plastination,” in which the tissues are replaced with a liquid polymer, down to the cellular level. The same technique is used, to more shocking effect, in the flayed human figures on display at Atlantic Station in the “Bodies” exhibit.

“Aquatic Bodies: Sea Monsters Revealed” is open at the Georgia Aquarium and is included in the price of admission. Hours: 10 a.m.-5 p.m. Sunday-Friday, 9 a.m.-6 p.m. Saturday; $23.95-$29.95; the Georgia Aquarium, 225 Baker St., 404-581-4000, www.georgiaaquarium.org/
