Gentle giant

They come to gaze in wonder, perhaps, at the sight of a giant seldom seen. One mystery of the deep partially revealed.

Far from killers, basking sharks are one of three species of filter-feeding shark that strain tiny animals from the water and are found in coastal waters throughout the world.
