The whale shark, although large in size, is not a hunter like other sharks. Known as a filter feeder, the whale shark eats small organisms like plankton.

Whale sharks can be found in the Pacific, Atlantic and Indian oceans, and typically stay near the equator.

Currently, the whale shark is listed as a vulnerable species, and it has seen a 90 percent reduction in population worldwide.
