As a short background regarding whale sharks, these giant fishes belong to filter feeding shark-looking fish. It is not a shark but a fish because it is not a mammal—it delivers eggs not baby fishes. Whale sharks could reach more than 40 feet and could weigh up to 20 tonnes. This fish is by far the largest extant non-mammalian vertebrate on the face of the earth. Moreover, they have a lifespan of 70 years or more.
Whale sharks only feed on planktons, krills (cute shrimps), and other much smaller creatures. That is why humans and other bigger creatures are never in danger when in close contact, but the opposite could be so. In some areas, whale sharks are being poached for its fins!
