About Whale Sharks
The words "whale shark" call to mind images of a huge, ferocious beast preying on whales, but nothing could be further from the truth. This solitary, slow moving creature's name refers to it's size. At up to 50 feet and 16 tons, the whale shark (Rhincodon typus) is not only the largest shark but also the largest fish in the world. The trademark wide mouth opens amazingly wide to scoop up plankton, small squid, small fish and krill. Check out the photos at Extreme Science. Because of its quiet, gentle nature, it has become a favorite among divers. It seems to pay no attention at all when divers touch or climb on it. The whale shark can be found in tropical waters world wide.
