The only living member of the genus Rhincodon, the whale shark is endemic to tropical waters around the world. They are one of three species of shark that employs filter feeding, the others being the megamouth shark and the basking shark. 

Scientific Name: Rhincodon typus

Characteristics: Individually hand painted and immaculately sculpted, this model makes a wonderful gift for expert and novice marine biologists alike! Bring the majesty and wonder of the world’s oceans right into your living room! Whale sharks have striped gray, blue, or brown skin with white spots, as well as a white underside. 

History: Because of how docile and gentle they are, whale sharks are a popular attraction for divers. In fact, some young whale sharks will even play with humans. However, some swimmers will try to “hitch a ride” by grabbing their fins. This is discouraged by experts and scientists, because it can cause unnecessary stress for the whale sharks. Don’t worry – with a little bit of imagination, you can safely catch a ride on our whale shark model instead!
