Tiny, basking sharks are very different than whale sharks. So little is known about basking sharks and I have never heard of divers swimming with them. They must stay out in the middle of the oceans, and not close to any shorelines.
Yes, they are plankton eaters, but they can eat slightly larger food, too. Just like the plankton eating whales that will eat sardines in the bait balls. The sharks will spit out the fish that are too large, which is why they chop the fish into smaller pieces.
I am home, finally.
After 34 hours of travel, I am finally laying in my own bed. Everything here is great, thanks to my fantastic critter caretakers. One even welcomed me home with two new pullets I was wanting (chickens). Going back to work will be a chore, but it is essential so that I can start saving for next years trip to Fiji........
Anyone want to join us there? There's room for more.
