Why do these gorgeous giant whale sharks aggregate in the blue water off Isla Mujeres, Mexico? PLANKTON + FISH EGGS 🐟🥚
Little tunny, a small tuna species, can produce over a million eggs each breeding season. The little tunny spawn overnight and their eggs float gently upwards towards the surface. Whale sharks swim around gulping the eggs up for sometimes hours at a time!
How incredibly blessed we are that these gentle giants grace us with their presence, despite all that we have done to them. Perhaps a lesson in compassion and empathy? #whalesharklove #turningthetide #worthmorealive @sealegacy @bluespherefoundation @lonelywhale
