Hi this week i am writing about , you guessed it whale sharks . I dont know much about any sharks but i will surch some stuff about them and the info so here we go.  The largest confirmed individual had a length of 12.65 m (41.5 ft) and a weight of about 21.5 t (47,000 lb), and unconfirmed reports of considerably larger whale sharks exist. that is some info and here is some more. did you know that the whale shark has been living on earth for about 60 million years ago . The whale shark inhabits all tropical and warm-temperate seas. The fish is primarily pelagic, living in the open sea but not in the greater depths of the ocean.The whale shark is a filter feeder – one of only three known filter feeding shark species (along with the basking shark and themegamouth shark). It feeds on plankton including copepods, krill, fish eggs, Christmas Island red crab larvae [17] and smallnektonic life, such as small squid or fish. It also feeds on clouds of eggs during mass spawning of fish and corals.
