The sea hides deep mysteries, the habitat is so vast that it is home to incredibly huge creatures. This is the most recent news of a real marine revolution that awaits the feeding of a species of fish. Among the seabed there are many species, including exotic species of fish.

There is an infinite variety of them, they are small, medium, large, colorful and spectacular. It is well known that majestic oceans are home above all to similar creatures. The vision immediately refers us to the whales who are the masters of the sea. They are gigantic mammals that can reach a length of 6 m.

Among these, the whale fish stands out. Perhaps it would be better to decipher it with the scientific name which would be the whale shark. Scientists claim that it is the largest animal in the world that feeds on krill and other small fish. Its mammoth look certainly engenders terror.

Revolution around a big fish: it is herbivorous

The body is that of a whale covered in polka dots and white stripes. The mouth is wide with a row of internal teeth between which it filters water to take its sustenance. To see it, you would not yet believe that the big fish is nice and does not attack humans at all.

The most surprising characteristic of this mammal is the fact that it is herbivorous. That’s right, it feeds on algae and other plant matter that it finds along its swim. This is not the first case since on the continent the elephant and the hippos keep him company.

Biologists claim that the whale shark does not need an exclusively carnivorous diet. Plankton is the favorite food of ocean owners. In this regard, the famous Dr. Mark Mekaan says:

“Perhaps the system of evolution on land and in water is not that different. The study, published in Ecology, took into consideration the results of several whale shark biopsy samples from Ningaloo Reef , the beautiful coral reef in Western Australia.

By comparing the fatty acids and amino acids found in animal tissues with those found in plankton and algae samples, the truth emerged.”
