The Biggest Shark In The World Pictures

The Biggest shark ever

What is the Biggest Shark Species?

The whale shark holds the title of the world's biggest shark species. Growing to a length of about 65 feet (the length of about 1 1/2 school buses!) and weighing about 75,000 pounds, this streamlined fish is really a gentle giant.

Some areas frequented by these sharks, such as Ningaloo Reef, Australia, have become popular tourist destinations because of their swim-with-sharks programs.

The second-biggest shark species is the basking shark, which grows to about 40 feet.
