Animal of the day – 12/23/2011 – The Whale Shark

Whale Shark

The animal of the day is the Whale Shark. (Did you know: Whale sharks can live up to 180 years! Whale sharks also give birth to live young, hatching the eggs inside themselves!

A big mystery is where Whale Sharks go to breed, and scientists still haven’t figured it out! Only one pregnant whale shark has ever been recorded and there have been very few juvenile whale sharks seen at any location throughout their range.
