Feeding time

In Cenderawasih Bay fishermen squid stationed for months on rickety wooden platforms a few miles from the coast. The deviation of the fish attracts whale sharks (Rhincodon typus) that seem to appreciate this unusual delicacy. Whale sharks for local people are synonymous with good luck and are treated like real puppies. They were counted up to 13 sharks together.
