Whale Shark

Rhincodon typus


Approximately 40 foot Whale Shark. Largest fish on the planet. Filter feeder.


Marine, warm tropical waters.


The Whale Sharks were in early that year. We were lucky to get a chance to snorkel with it. The shark kept swimming right under the boat, close enough to touch, but we did not. What an amazing experience.
