Basking Shark

(Cetorhinus maximus) is the second largest fish in the world. The average length of an adult is about 20-26 feet (6-8m). It is a plankton feeder and this species is found in all the world's temperate oceans. They are quite slow feeders with their large gaping mouth filling with plankton but they do have the power to jump completely out of the water like a Great White. They would put a scare into most divers because of their size but they are quite harmless
