People are sharing these pictures of a whale shark all over social media, and we can understand why. The photos, which we suggest you check out in the video above, show a shark snapping its mouth wide open, right next to a diver, like it's about to swallow it.
Fortunately for the diver and the photographer, whale sharks do not pose any danger to humans, because they feed exclusively on plankton, as Debbie Wallace pointed out to a surfer who commented on her photo, which is equal parts amazing and scary.
Heaven for photographers
The photographer told Sputnik News:
"In a couple of the photos, I was photographing a huge school of barracudas when I panned to my left to find this gorgeous juvenile female whale shark about to enter the school. As she was entering, the school of barracudas parted to allow her passage. Tubbataha is a magical place and is basically a wide-angle heaven for photographers.
