    These sharks have picked up an interesting habit of sucking the fish right out of the nets...but I guess they get a little greedy and go into the nets and need to be cut free by divers.

    Personally, I would never rescue one. They will cut your throat as you sleep. I might eat one . . I hear they taste like chicken.

    Whale sharks will not attack humans. They are primarily filter feeders though they will also prey on very small fish.

    Very docile and its quite common to see them in close proximity to divers in Mexico.

    Well whale sharks don't just live in Mexico or do they?

    Um, no. But they also don't have teeth.
