Video: Stunningly Beautiful Video of Graceful Whale Shark in Thailand

Whale shark in Koh Phangan, Thailand - by Chris Hailey
Prepare yourself to get lost in this absolutely stunning video showing a whale shark gracefully moving through the waters off Koh Phangan, Thailand.

The video was shot during a Sail Rock Divers dive and was taken using a GoPro Hero 3 silver edition.

The timing of this video is perfect.  Earlier today on our Facebook page, we shared a ridiculous article published by shanghaiist.com.  In the article, they show images of a large whale shark that was caught by fishermen in Fishermen in Rizhao, Shandong Province, China.

The article's author refers to the gentle, plankton eating shark as a " terrifyingly massive beast" and states that the "oceans are terrifying places full of monsters."

So with that ludicrous article in mind, it was so nice to come across this video posted earlier today by Chris Hailey on Youtube.  The video is 1:57 in length.  Turn on your speakers, sit back and enjoy!
