The Shark That is Slow by George T.

By November 12, 2019

Did you know that the Whale Shark is the biggest shark in the world? They swim so slowly that boats sometimes bump into them. They are so gentle that divers can catch rides on their backs. Sometimes Sucker Head Fish can hitch rides too. They have white spots on their back, fins, and tail. They eat tiny plants and animals, called plankton, that drift through the sea. Whale sharks have over 4,000 teeth. The Whale Shark grows longer than school buses! If you want to see one, they live in warm coastal waters all over the world. If I ever saw one, I would give it a hug and try to get a ride on it.
