Animal of the day – 3/25/2011 – The Basking Shark

Basking Shark

The animal of the day is the Basking Shark. (Did you know: It’s the 2nd largest fish in the world, right behind the whale shark!

Like most super huge ocean animals, this shark actually feeds on the tiniest stuff! It’s a filter feeder focusing on plankton and tiny shrimp and such, so if you run into one, don’t worry!

Yeah. That's a big ass shark.
