Fun Facts: After the whale shark, the basking shark is the second largest living fish, and can grow up to 32 feet long. These sharks are often mistaken for plesiosaurs, a group of long-necked, predatory marine reptiles that lived at the time of the dinosaurs.
It’s super amazing that these guys survive on plankton and junk. Same with whales who only eat krill. HOW ARE YOU SO GIGANTIC?!
