    That's what I was thinking - and I didn't think any of the shark species were supposed to have anything but below-average intelligence. Especially a filter feeder - a fish that just swims around with it's mouth open.

    On a somewhat related note, there have been record numbers of Blue whales as well as Humpbacks reported over the past few weeks in Monterey Bay.
    All the best,

    Why are the blue whales always there when I'm not?

    I just noticed something. Remember the common rule that sharks die if they stop swimming? I think we still have a lot more to learn about whale sharks.

    Sharks are actually proving to be a lot smarter than expected, especially great whites and bull sharks.

    Would be interesting to find out if this is a one -time, one-off discovery by a single fish or if this trick has been passed along to other whale sharks. Perhaps from mother to pup...?
