This is the first time I have seen anything like this where whale shark pursue a scuba diver.
The tittle of the video below is “Whale Shark Attacks Diver”, but I am not sure if I would use the attack word. It seems as though the whale shark was persistently inquisitive, but certainly not attack mode.
Personally, I found this behavior by the whale shark somewhat surprising, but once again this is a case where the diver did appear to be too close to the whale shark before the shark became inquisitive.
Supposedly the shark was attracted to the diver’s bubbles, but I can almost guarantee that the diver was somewhat fearful based upon the following video clip.
