Jaws Teeth Whale sharks have a mouth that can be 1. The head is wide and flat with two small Sharks paper at the front. Whale sharks are grey with a Sharks paper belly.
Their skin is marked with pale yellow spots and stripes which are unique to each individual. The whale shark has three prominent ridges along its sides. The shark has a pair of dorsal fins and pectoral fins. Juveniles' tails have a larger upper fin than the lower fin, while the adult tail becomes semi lunate.
The whale shark's spiracles are just behind its eyes. The whale shark is the largest non- cetacean animal in the world. The average size of adult whale sharks is estimated at 9.
In a publication, Hugh M. Smith described a huge animal caught in a bamboo fish trap in Thailand in A shark caught in off Tainan Countysouthern Taiwan, reportedly weighed Ina ship named the Maurguani came across a whale shark in the southern Pacific Ocean, rammed it, and the shark became stuck on the prow of the ship, supposedly with 4.
Distribution and habitat[ edit ] The whale shark inhabits all tropical and warm-temperate seas. Although typically seen offshore, it has been found closer to land, entering lagoons or coral atolls, and near the mouths of estuaries and rivers. It was one of the largest gatherings of whale sharks recorded.
Associated ecotourism has grown rapidly to unsustainable levels. The capture of a female in July that was pregnant with pups indicated whale sharks are ovoviviparous.
Evidence indicates the pups are not all born at once, but rather the female retains sperm from one mating and produces a steady stream of pups over a prolonged period. Based on this discovery, some scientists no longer believe this area is just a feeding ground; this site may be a birthing ground, as well.
Both young whale sharks and pregnant females have been seen in the waters of Saint Helena in the South Atlantic Ocean, where numerous whale sharks can be spotted during the summer. It feeds on plankton including copepodskrillfish eggsChristmas Island red crab larvae  and small nektonic life, such as small squid or fish.
It also feeds on clouds of eggs during mass spawning of fish and corals. Feeding occurs either by ram filtration, in which the animal opens its mouth and swims forward, pushing water and food into the mouth, or by active suction feeding, in which the animal opens and closes its mouth, sucking in volumes of water that are then expelled through the gills.
In both cases, the filter pads serve to separate food from water. These unique, black sieve-like structures are presumed to be modified gill rakers.
Food separation in whale sharks is by cross-flow filtrationin which the water travels nearly parallel to the filter pad surface, not perpendicularly through it, before passing to the outside, while denser food particles continue to the back of the throat.
Whale sharks have been observed "coughing", presumably to clear a build-up of particles from the filter pads. Whale sharks migrate to feed and possibly to breed. It is able to ram filter feed or can gulp in a stationary position. This is in contrast to the passive feeding basking shark, which does not pump water.
Instead, it swims to force water across its gills. The same documentary showed footage of a whale shark timing its arrival to coincide with the mass spawning of fish shoals and feeding on the resultant clouds of eggs and sperm. These include krill, crab larvae, jellyfish, sardines, anchovies, mackerels, small tunas, and squid.
In ram filter feeding, the fish swims forward at constant speed with its mouth fully open, straining prey particles from the water by forward propulsion. Despite its size, the whale shark does not pose any danger to humans.
Whale sharks are docile fish and sometimes allow swimmers to catch a ride,    although this practice is discouraged by shark scientists and conservationists because of the disturbance to the sharks. Underwater photographers such as Fiona Ayerst have photographed them swimming close to humans without any danger.
The species is considered endangered by the IUCN due to the impacts of fisheries, bycatch losses, and vessel strikes, combined with its long lifespan and late maturation. Sightings confirmed that the whale sharks were unable to avoid the oil slick, which was situated on the surface of the sea where the whale sharks feed for several hours at a time.
No dead whale sharks were found.Mar 10, · I always like to start with an info sheet. Print out your own by clicking on the picture. I usually print on card stock and then laminate it with contact paper so that it can be kept around all month without getting damaged.
