There were many tuna there. This is Ascension Island. They wait for the big ones and leave the smaller.

As for the whale shark.....Jeezus I would have had to clean my wetsuit if i turned around and that thing was in my face like that. Whale shark or not when big stuff sneaks up and is in your face when you see it...Damn...

Re: Anyone know Who are these Spearos smashed by a Whale Shark?

Funny video. Those handfed Tunas don't seem to show much fear of divers. I had a similar incident (minus the Tuna) a few months ago where I collided with a Whale Shark while surfacing from a deep drop. Dislocated my shoulder and tore my Rotator Cuff.. As I was writhing about, the Gentle beast came back repeatedly and rubbed up on me as if it could sense I was in pain.

Re: Anyone know Who are these Spearos smashed by a Whale Shark?

Most whale shark video show them kindly swimming gently and do picking the whale side... People need to be reassured.
I could observe (off the Cuban coast) a whale shark hunting fiercely in a school by swimming fast like a rocket... the shark side / the real life!
