Whale Shark off Bang Saphan

Post by Big Boy » Tue May 09, 2017 12:13 pm

TAT have today published photos of a rare sighting off Bang Saphan yesterday. A whale shark playing with swimmers - beautiful. The accompanying text says get to Bang Saphan quickly, or you may miss it, so I'm not sure if it's been around for a few days.

Yes, please get it out of the gulf ASAP before it ingests enough plastic to kill it and it washes up on to a beach.

For those who missed the opportunity to swim with this whale shark, we advise ordering some of its meat at the local market. :duck:

I think the other shark is more beautiful than the whale shark.

I haven't seen this beauty live. I really love to see one someday somewhere.
