The whale shark is the world's biggest fish found throughout the world in tropical and sub tropical seas. Each individual can be identified by a unique spot pattern, just like a human fingerprint.
They can be found near shore, off shore, and everywhere in between. They are even capable of diving to great depths.
These whale sharks were off the coast of Southern Leyte where there is a steep drop off, allowing them to feet on plankton upwellings. They were not being fed by anyone and were in an all-natural environment.
