whale sharks omg!

dude, i know this is suppose to be the biggest fish in the world, but holy bejeebus! they're so much bigger than i thought.

It is suppose to feed like a whale as well, only eats krill and stuff, so it won't eat me, thank God.

Hmmm.....would a whale shark mind if I rode on it? that would be awesome, like horsy . Then again, I wouldn't want to hurt the big guy

I hope your not trolling ;)

Yeah they are amazing, there is a lot of them off the west coast of Aus, some people have been lucky enough to snorkel with them.

wondering is the beauty of mystery
Check out my 29g grow out (quite a mixed bunch)

They also frequent the waters off Costa Rica. When I was vacationing down there I really wanted to go diving and hopefully see one but the B/F doesn't dive and I couldn't find a dive buddy. Next time!

If you don't stand up for something you'll fall for anything...

Whale sharks can be found off of Florida as well close to the reefs. They are usually gentle enough to grab onto the dorsal fin and go for a ride. I have never tried to straddle one horse style though. Just held on to the dorsal fin.
