"Ohmigosh! I caught a whale shark! It could have swallowed me up!" —New Leaf

The whale shark (ジンベエザメ, Jinbēzame?) is a fish that made its debut in New Leaf. It can only be caught on the island and is the largest fish that can be caught in the game, meaning it will always win the Fishing Tourney if submitted as an entry.

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."

Further information

Is

A real-life whale shark.

The whale shark is the largest fish in the world at 45 (or more) feet. It is found in open waters of the tropical oceans. Modeling suggests a lifespan of about 70 years but measurements have proven difficult. Whale sharks have very large mouths and are filter feeders. They feed mainly on plankton and are generally considered harmless to humans. They have five large pairs of gills. The head is wide and flat with two small eyes at the front. Whale sharks are grey with a white belly.
