How cute is this little guy?

This is one of the smaller whale sharks I’ve seen on YouTube. Starts around 8:25 into the video (I can’t seem to work out how to embed a video half way through). You can see him do a bit of subsurface ram filtering, and he coughs a couple of times, which is a behaviour we see at the aquarium from time to time. 

Those remoras are a real drag…

Maybe it's just that I don't work with whale sharks enough, but I have to disagree with the characterization of that guy as "little". That's a big ol' fish, even if it's just a baby.

OK, you have a good point. I should have said "relatively speaking"!
