*Sigh*

And no, you get no credit whatsoever for correcting it in the story, not if you leave it as 'mammal' on the front page!

A pretty good faux pas rating but I can't wait for it to blunder into a deliciously premature obituary.

Not only that, but whale sharks eat only plankton sieved from the water, not fish!

The Daily Mail, truly as useful as tits on a fish.

Chalcedon, I thought that too, but they're certainly whale sharks and the other pics in The Mainly Fail do make it look like they're eating the fish. Maybe it's a sharky treat that they have now and then when there isn't a nanny whale shark around wagging a fin tip at them and lecturing them about the ocean's obesity epidemic, but that's a complete guess.

They aren't exclusively plankton-eaters. They can, and do, take small fish and squid - the BBC's 'Planet Earth' nature documentary was one of the first to film this.

"That is magnificent in its level of FAIL"

They really are in a class of their own, aren't they?
