Extremely cute baby fish picture

You know those giant worlds-largest fish called whale sharks? Adult whale sharks can be as large as 40 feet long and 25,000 pounds. Well here's a photo of a baby whale shark that's about 15 inches long, isn't it too cute for words?

For contrast, here's a photo of an adult whale shark next to a diver (below).

Thanks to shark conservationist extraordinare Sonja Fordham for the link to the baby whale shark photo!

The amazing thing about juvinile ocean creatures is that there are actually many more juviniles than adults of any given specie, but you never see them. For instance, there has to be many more 3" bluefin tuna than adults, but how many people have actually seen one? The same goes for most of the life in the sea...

Wow, that's amazing! It's so big when it's grown up. How cool to have found a baby :)
