    the fish is a whale shark for sure, a very docile fish that lives on crill , not a man eater.
     
  10. Agreed with everyone. It's sad to see the rest of the pictures from the article where they cut it open and all for nothing.
     
  11. I was looking for cobia swimming underneath of it but then i relized that it isnt' in the ocean. :mad: MURDERERS!


    Little known fact about whale sharks: They do survive mainly on crill and plankton but they do also eat small baitfish as well. This is a relativiely recent discovery which was captured on film and broacast as a scene in a recent presentation of Discovery HD Theatre's "Planet Earth" series.

    I didn't know that they also ate baitfish. cool stuff.

    there was some great footage of whale sharks (among other ocean life) on 'Deep Blue' which aired on Discovery this past sunday. it was produced by the same people who did 'Planet Earth'.
     
  13. I see that Discovery has created at least two fountains of useless knowledge. ;)

    The whale shark is targeted by artisanal and commercial fisheries in several areas where they seasonally aggregate. The population is unknown and the species is considered vulnerable by the IUCN.[1]
