This whaleshark sucks its dinner

How does a whaleshark catch its dinner? Pretty simple, really: it lets fishermen do the job for it. This video, posted by Conservation International, shows how whalesharks have learned to suck silverside baitfish through holes in fishing nets. This video was filmed in Cendrawasih Bay, which is on the wild north coast of New Guinea island. Where’s that? Take a look at the map, below. And yes, we sail there.
