The world's biggest fish are hungry migrators on a mission, according to a tracking study that mapped whale sharks' long journeys around the Gulf of Mexico and Caribbean to a favorite feeding hot spot off the Yucatan Peninsula And one whale shark's incredible 5,000-mile swim could even help solve the long-standing mystery of where whale sharks give birth-an event no scientist has ever seen
The white shark's eye looking downward as it tracks its target and the powerful jaw slightly agape are beautifully captured in this image. This photo can be purchased to support this continued work by MJB and WSV
There's an app to track great whites. I just learned that today on facebook. The ocean is beautiful, but we are sharing it with the other creatures, when we jump in the ocean. I want to know every little move of those sharks, so that I can get out of their way....really fast!
Tracking Great White Sharks: "Take a picture, they say, anytime you see a great white. Just get the fin. That’s all it takes. It’s as distinct as a fingerprint. And they will build the database of which great whites are swimming where. Fin by fin, scientists are building the global map of the great white shark kingdom."
