Gargantuan whale shark bites boat off Mexico

By Ben Hooper

June 2 (UPI) -- A boater off the coast of Mexico captured the moment an enormous whale shark swam up to the vessel and tried to bite it.

The video, filmed earlier this month in the Sea of Cortez, shows the whale shark -- the world's largest fish -- swimming up to the boat while the passengers watch in awe.

The footage shows the shark open its mouth and clamp down on the swim deck.

The person who filmed the video said the boat was not damaged, as whale sharks are filter feeders and have tiny teeth.
