The whale shark whose scientific name is Rhincodon typus is today the biggest fish that exists on the planet, can reach up to 18 meters long. They prefer to live in the warm surface waters or areas where there are outbreaks of nutrient-rich cold water, as these conditions favor the growth of plankton which will feed them. That is why we can see many of these whale sharks in summer off the coast of the Caribbean Sea.

Stains that have been generated various local names like Domino or fish Lady, alluding to the Board game. Each individual has a unique pattern of spots which allows individual identification; it is like your fingerprint as it does not alter the growth. It is possible that they also have a function of social attraction.

 Whale sharks are usually solitary, although it is often seen living with manta rays and other whale sharks.              

The whale shark does not have features in common with whales with the exception of its size and the fact that only eat tiny plankton that picks up with his mouth open. Normally feeds on the surface or slightly below this, filtering small organisms of plankton in the water through their gills.
