The world’s biggest fish, the whale shark is a gentle giant that is bigger than a school bus. They thrive wherever there is warm water, and many live off the shore of the Philippines. The whale shark maxing out at about 46 feet in length and weighing up to about 3,300 pounds.
The whales shark sounds ferocious by its name and monstrous size. They are definitely strange animals, yet believe it or not they are just gentle giants. Their mouth plenty large enough to swallow a human, but their stomach opening is small. So, don’t worry, they can’t swallow a human. They actually skim along the surface, and consume huge quantities of plankton and krill.
If you ever plan to tell someone you spotted one, who’s not been around these monsters of the sea, be sure to bring your camera. You will have proof about the biggest whopper on the planet that got away.
