Mods, please move this to the "whale" thread.
Sharks, Kevin. Sharks.
If you want to discuss the time the killer whale killed the young Great White (caught on tape), then that would be fine here. Otherwise, I'll have to say take Dp's advice and start a Whale, or Free Willy thread.
As for Whale Sharks, I think they can grow up to about 50 feet long. No idea how long school buses are these days though. Unfortunately, whenever I see a Whale Shark now, I always think of that "interesting" segment from the movie Jackass.
Idej, thanks for the reminder on that Monterey Bay Aquarium white. I hadn't heard squat on that since the initial hoopla died down after the first few weeks. Glad to hear the shark's still doing well. Since it was a baby when they caught it, hopefully it will adapt to captivity better than all of it's predecessors. Interesting to hear that she's chewin' up the other sharks in there!
I'll definitely be paying a visit to see it the next time we're up in the Bay Area, that's for sure.
