SHARKWEEK: Whale Shark by squeedgemonster SHARKWEEK: Whale Shark by squeedgemonster
Oh man, I can't believe I missed a day! I got busy with work and all that jazz, but I made time for today's shark for *Polarkeet's #SharkWeekSketchJam, the prodigious whale shark.

Despite being the largest non-cetacean animal in the world, the whale shark's diet is almost entirely made up of some of the smallest organisms in the sea, plankton! Their teeth are tiny to the point of being useless, and this peaceful giant spends its time slowly drifting through the water, filtering food through its five foot wide mouth.

I would love to swim next to one of these guys, they are so massive and graceful it's unreal.

SHARKS ARE IN TROUBLE. They've roamed our oceans for more than 400 million years, but now shark populations face extinction globally. It is estimated that 73 million sharks are killed every year due to commercial and recreational fishing. Check out SHARK SAVERS to see how you can help.

I love your style with the whale shark, and the colours.
They are beautiful, and I'd love to swim next to them, too.
