What’s on:
Whale Shark. This is the largest fish in the world – sometimes measuring eighteen meters in length. Like some whales, these sharks have no teeth and strain the sea for tiny marine organisms. A 1935 study hypothesized that they originate in Philippine waters and swim from here to all tropic seas of the world.

What’s on:
Manta ray. These gentle pelagic giants have been known to grow up to six and a half meters across. Mantas are filter feeders that eat floating shoals of tiny crustaceans, plankton and fish. Despite their size, they are harmless.
Manta ray is not to be confused with Stingray, which was responsible for death of Steve Irwin in 2006.
