Best Places to Swim with Whale Sharks

2/5

They are only able to swim up to 3 mph so they are easy to keep up with, (which also allows for better pictures and videos). Whale Sharks are indeed sharks, they breathe though gills and lay eggs and even have the physical appearance of a shark.

They are filter feeders which means, they only eat by inhaling water though their mouth then filtering it out through their gills, trapping any food in its mouth. If it happens to gulp anything larger than a quarter it will be spit out immediately.
