Whale Shark is More Graceful Under Water Than We Know

It’s easy to think of sharks as vicious, lumbering ocean dwellers, but the reality is different. 

An Instagram video surfaced this week of a whale shark doing the most graceful barrel roll to avoid a sea turtle in its path.

It seems as though traversing the ocean has certain rules like our roads.

This whale shark is about 30 feet long and just look at the way it glides through the water!

It’s incredible to see sharks interacting with other forms of wildlife in a way that isn’t chomping them. Of course, we know sharks are majestic creatures, but this video confirms it.
