Â whale shark
Damn: Just looking at it bent backwards like that...
Something`s wrong...?: the ship isn`t moving but the shark is still in the possision as it would be when it got hit...Give me a good explination for this
Great White Shark Nailed: Don't want to be picky at all but its actually a Whale Shark
yeah, really big: yeah when i took the picture (of the whale shark, not great white) we figured it was like 30 ft long. there are another 5 or so feet on the other side
i'm gonna have to say whale shark: the markings are exactly what a whale shark is, and if you look at the numbers on the side, which i think show how many feet of water the ship is under, that shark is way bigger than any great white could get
Wrong Shark: I'de like to consider myself a bit of a shark-buff, and I can't help but noticed that you labled the shark wrong. It's a tiger shark. Plain to see by the markings on the side of the fish.
I'm not a bleeding heart member of PETA, but...: Poor thing. It may have been dead before it was hit, though, it's not like a freighter would just sneak up on something like that. Like someone else said, I'd hate to be the poor sucker to clean that up.
GREAT WHITE GETS NAILED: No Couseau - It's a Whale Shark. You can tell by the markings and the front fins. They're slow, surface feeders. Also, a Great White is much too fast to get caught up by a freighter
i'm the guy that posted the picture: it is a whale shark. thats what i said, i dont know what happened when it got posted.
this happened off of honolulu hawaii on a 800' containership
shark: its clearly a whale shark from the width of its body and the distinct spot markings on its body and tail. a Great White doesnt look anything like this
shark?: Looks like a porpous to me.
Shark: I believe it is a Great White because thats the bottom side of the shark showing. Apparently it must've turned bottoms-up like that when it was hit. Im not saying that it IS a Great White, but thats just what im thinkin
Whale Shark: It's a whale shark. Great Whites are too fast anyway to get caught like that.
Whale Shark: Bummer for the shark.
And it IS a whale shark, not a great white or tiger or whatever else you have been arguing about. -JNorm
hehe: i think the ship's commander was attempting to hit it.
not a great white: you can plainly tell by the way the color of skin on tail that this is not a great white but is instead a whaleshark
not a great white: it is a whale shark NOT a great white as it has spots on its tail fin
It's not a shark: If you look, the animal is on its side and its back fin is verticle. If this animal were swimming, that fin would be horizontal, thus it is either a dolphin or a young whale of some kind.
great white?: Maybe a great whale shark,you turd.
In my opinion.: That's the bow of a ship and that's a whale shark, not a great white.
You are all wrong: Nope. You all all wrong. I am certain that is the front of a ship.
Shark: dude, thats a godamn Tiger Shark... not a great white... Note the Pattern on its back...
Nice pic tho..
Great white: That's not a great white. If you look at the dorsal part of the shark, what little you can see, you will see a light tan with some white spots. I think it's a whale shark
the shark: I believe that the shark is a leopard shark and not a great white.
Whale Shark: I checked the net and some pictures to be certain and it's a Whale Shark,no doubt about it.I recognize the shape of the fins and body,you can also see the spots.It's the largest fish in the world and feeds on plankton.I would love to dive with one of these.
Hmm... i'm a marine biologist: I'm a marine biologist. It's definetely a dolphin!!!
Great White Shark: I don't think great white sharks are that white. That's probably a Beluga Whale.
wow: that fuckin sux, id hate to be the guy who cleans that up
