Whale Sharks

Hey, first post by me! I checked the tags and only found one thing on the Whale Shark, but it's not the same as what I just saw today:

Monster sharks "fly" like fighter pilots

So, basically, researchers found that whale sharks can do all sorts of crazy maneuvers that have never been observed in fish before. According to the article they can move in the water somewhat the same way as a bird flies. Methinks it's pretty cool.
