This enormous fish, a whale shark, the biggest fish in the world, is not a dinosaur. Honest.
I stumbled upon this picture when it was used to advertise a youtube video titled, “Ten Real Dinosaurs Found.” It’s over half an hour long, and that’s why I haven’t posted it.
The whale shark really is that big, but it is not a dinosaur. For all its colossal size, it is a harmless plankton-feeder. There are also photo-shopped pictures of a whale shark attacking people, to eat them. That has never happened. Plankton-eaters do not eat large mammals.
What does it say about our general education level, that a fish is presented to us as a dinosaur? I mean, how dumb is that?
Nature is interesting enough without the baloney.
I’m Mr. Nature, and I’ve approved this message.
