Video: Swimmer Gets Up Close With Whale Shark in Palm Beach, Florida

Up close view of whale shark's mouth - by Kristofer Landers
There are close ups shots and then there are seriously close up shots.  This video features the latter as we get an amazing view inside a whale shark's mouth.

The video was taken on December 2, 2013 off Palm Beach, Florida in waters with stunning clarity.

It appears that the people in the video were spearfishing when they had the surprise encounter with the world's largest fish.  As they swim about enjoying the company of the whale shark, the videographer gets a bit of a surprise at the 1:10 mark when the whale shark approaches the camera and we get an up close view inside its mouth.
