Donating to the Museum

In New Leaf

In New Leaf an information board in the aquarium will list information about this fish.

"Whale sharks are the world's largest fish, but they're surprisingly some of the gentlest. They can swim at only three mph, so although they're large and very imposing, they're not really a threat. They swim with their mouths open to swallow vast quantities of tiny creatures and sea water. As they expel the water through their gills, they will eat what then remains. Since they don't have to bite prey their teeth are file-like and number about 10,000 in multiple rows."
