FGBNMS -- Whale Shark

Whale sharks, the largest fish on the planet, are summer visitors to Flower Garden Banks National Marine Sanctuary. These highly migratory sharks can grow to about 30 feet in length and feed on tiny plankton. Each whale shark has a unique pattern of spots -- just like your fingerprint! (Photo: Ryan Eckert/NOAA)
