  • Care to get eaten by a shark?

    http://news.yahoo.com/photos/whale-s...ideshow/#crsl=

    Pretty awesome experience, if you ask me. But I'm pretty sure it wasn't so great at that particular moment.

    Whale Sharks aren't capable of eating humans or any mammal for that matter. It'd be like trying to fit a piano through a small window. I guess it'd be kind of fun to get ate by that type of shark. Great Whites? No.

        That's the type of thing I have nightmares about. I've always wondered about that!

          You know it, I know it, and I'm sure the diver knew it. But I'll be he still wet his wetsuit to be staring right into the gaping maw of that shark!

            I love that first photograph. I remember reading about this yesterday on Yahoo and thought how awesome it was that the dude is swimming with an animal the size of a house.

                One of several reasons the Ocean is creeping up my list of things I'm most afraid of. It'll be overtaking Spiders if that ever happens to me. I don't care if it can eat me or not. I might take being eaten by a great white over being crushed to death and drown by a whale shark.

                  The only death I could imagine being worse for me is being squeezed to death by a snake

                    Whale sharks are filter feeders, which means they take in mouthfuls of water and strain out the plankton, so there is no danger of getting crushed or bitten by them. I've also read that a whale shark's throat is about the size of a quarter, so no danger of being swallowed either. Swimming with a whale shark is on my bucket list!

                      Wow. That is insane. Flesh eating or not, if that were me I'd more then just wet my suit.
