WATCH: Whale Shark Sucks Fish Out of Hole In Fishing Net

Posted Jul 17, 2012

Conservation International’s Mark Erdmann recently filmed how whale sharks gather around lift nets and literally suck the silverside baitfish that fishers use.  While this can be dangerous for the sharks, the local fishers consider these creatures good luck.  This video has hit over 1.2 million views since being uploaded less than three weeks ago.
