Whale Sharks 

Whale Sharks are the largest fish in the world. They are classified as sharks, but they are harmless to humans and feed mostly on plankton, small fish, and krill. They are found in warm, tropical waters such as Isla Mujeres, and are known for their distinctive pattern of light vertical stripes and spots on a dark background. Whale sharks are slow-moving and often allow divers and snorkelers to swim alongside them, which makes them a popular attraction in Isla Mujeres. However, it is important to approach and interact with these animals with caution and respect, as they are still wild animals and can be unpredictable.
