Whale Shark (Rhiniodon typus) (1/9)

List item

The Whale Shark is the largest fish in the entire Ocean! The “whale” part in its name describes his length which is comparable to whales.They typically grow to about 10-12 m (33-40 ft) but may reach 18 m (60 ft) in length. They can weigh up to 15 tons.

This species poses no real threat to humans. Unfortunately, the reverse isn’t true. Whale shark deaths due to human activity are caused mainly by collisions with boats and by fishing.
