AND PEOPLE WONDER WHY I HAVE A CRIPPLING PHOBIA OF FISH. JUST LOOK AT THAT DAMN MOUTH, ALL READY FOR SWALLOING!
Holy shit. That kinda looks like a whaleshark but I’m not sure. I’m thinking it’s fake?
I’m not an expert, but it looks plausible to me. Whale sharks come in the 20-40 foot range, so this could be one on the larger side. Plus, judging by the intensity of the shark’s color vs. the diver’s (see how the shark is a strong gray, but the diver’s black wetsuit is, ahem, washed out with blue?), the diver is further away from the photographer than the shark. They’re not right in the shark’s swim path, they’re off to the side. There’s an optical illusion going that makes the shark look bigger in relation to the human than it actually is.
