Photos of the Day: August 21, 2013

Jeremy Prader and his son, Logan Prader, watch as sharks swim overhead while standing inside an underwater tunnel shark exhibit at Adventure Aquarium on August 20, 2013 in Camden, New Jersey. The town of Camden, which was once a large industrial town but watched it's population dwindle as manufacturing left, has been marred with societal problems including high unemployment, crime, murder and heavy drug for decades. The aquarium, on the shores of the Delaware river and across from Philadelphia, PA, is a bright spot for the community and draws tourists from around the region. Animals on display include sharks, hippos, penguins, sea turtles, a giant Pacific octopus and an alligator.
