Wisdom Wednesday | Whale Sharks

Whale sharks are filter feeders that eat plankton through their gills for much of their nourishment. They also eat squid, krill, and small fish. A whale shark can process more than 6,000 liters of water an hour through its gills. Whale sharks are in no way related to whales. Although they are sharks, they are very docile. A whale shark’s mouth is at the very front of its head—as opposed to the underside of the head like most sharks.

Hey Guys, Emma here,

In Italy, they found the carcass of a pregnant sperm whale last week that had 49 pounds (22 kilograms) of plastic in her stomach. I keep telling you, the plastic situation is out of control.
