Whale Shark

Rhincodon typus


This picture was taken during our whale watching and close encounter at Oslob Cebu, Philippines last year December 2014. The whale shark are so giant! They where like dogs of the fishermen. They use to follow the fishermen because they where fed by the fishermen with tiny shrimps. According to the native, they only exist at the area during mornings ( Philippines time ).
