Whale Sharks - The Largest "Fish" in Belize

One of the most interesting things to do in the next several months is see Belize whale sharks while diving or snorkeling.  These massive creatures are one of the wonders of the sea and spend the next few months swimming off of Belize.  It is great to be in the water with them but to give you a sense of what it is like to see whale sharks up close you can look at several videos that show whale sharks

in action.  According to Wikipedia, whale sharks are "a slow-moving filter feeding shark and the largest extant fish species. The largest confirmed individual had a length of 12.65 meters (41.50 ft) and a weight of more than 21.5 tonnes (47,000 lb)."  Despite its size, whale sharks are docile fish and do not pose significant danger to humans.  If you would like to know more about them you can read the complete

Wikipedia article about whale sharks.
