About ten days ago, an unconscious whale shark was seen in the Arabian sea. The animal then died and, with the use of multiple cranes, was brought to shore by fisherman.

The enormous creature, reported to be about 40 feet in length and 6 feet wide, brought in quite a crowd who gathered at the pier to see the carcass.

It was then sold for its meat and oil for 1.7 million rupees, or approximately $19,000.

The 60 million year old species has a lifespan of 70 years and can be found in tropical waters. They are filter feeders and live largely on plankton, although they have also been seen eating small schools of fish.

While the sharks are considered vulnerable by the International Union for Conservation of Nature, they are still hunted in parts of Asia. Thankfully, this one died a natural death.
