Diving with whale sharks
Get up close
The whale shark (Rhincodon typus) is a slow-moving filter feeding shark and the largest known fish. The largest confirmed individual had a length of 12.65 meters and a weight of about 21.5 tonnes and unconfirmed reports of considerably larger whale sharks exist. Claims of individuals over 14 m (46 ft) long and weighing at least 30 t (66,000 lb) are not uncommon. The whale shark holds many records for sheer size in the animal kingdom, most notably being by far the largest living nonmammalian vertebrate.
