Whale shark 

 

The whale shark is the largest fish on the earth today; it can grow up to 50 feet (15m) in length. The whale shark prefers waters of warm surface temperature, in areas where there are upwellings of nutrient rich colder water since these conditions favour blooms of plankton on which the sharks feed. They are often seen with schools of Jacks.

 

Whale sharkThe whale shark has nothing in common with whales except for its size and the fact that it only eats minute plankton by scooping it up whilst its mouth is wide open. It normally feeds on or just below the surface. It feeds by filtering small planktonic organisms out of the water through its gills. 

 

Whale sharkWhale sharks are viviparous animals and young ones are at times seen with the elders.

Whale sharks are very docile and gentle and, when approached by snorkelers or divers are uninhabited by the visit.

Since a few years ago, whale sharks have been coming to the northern tip of the Yucatan peninsula to feed and mate during the months of May through October. Faro Viejo Hotel now offers a unique excursion to see these magnificent creatures.
