🐋🦈Whales sharks are the largest fish in the world. They are not whales; they are sharks. 💧
🐋They have a lot in common with whales, though. For example, they are massive like whales and they feed more like whales than a typical shark
🚌Whale sharks can grow up to 40 feet (12 meters) long, but on average they grow to 18 to 32.8 feet (5.5 to 10 m) and weigh 20.6 tons (18.7 metric tonnes). That’s about the size of a school bus.
🦈Great white sharks may get more attention, but they are dwarfed by whale sharks.
🦈Great whites are the world's largest predatory fish, according to #discovery . They grow to be about 15 to 20 feet (4.6 to 6.1 meters) or more and can weigh more than 5,000 lbs. (2,268 kilograms). 💧💧
🐋🦈Whale sharks are not predatory, they are filter feeders according to #nationalgeographic
Whale shark females produce eggs, but the young hatch inside of the mother instead of in the water like most fish
Much of the sharks' lives seem to occur in the open sea, where they're hard to observe, leaving chunks of their lives a mystery. For instance, no one has ever seen whale sharks mate
