giThe largest confirmed individual had a length of 18.8 m. The whale shark holds many records for size in the animal kingdom, most notably being by far the largest living nonmammalian vertebrate.
Whale shark mouths can contain over 300 rows of tiny teeth Unlike many other sharks, whale sharks’ mouths are located at the front of the head rather than on the underside of the head. The head is wide and flat with two small eyes at the front corners. Whale sharks have five large pairs of gills. Its skin can be up to 15 cm thick and is very hard and rough to the touch.
The Whalesharks we visit are exceptionally consistent in their habits and successful encounters are extremely reliable. But please remember we are visiting wild animals in their own environment. We ask you to approach each encounter with caution and respect, and never to presume we have any control over their appearance or actions whatsoever. These whale sharks favour our encounters with curiosity and much tolerance.
