Insensitive Whale Shark?


Watch this.
Yes it's nice and I'm happy the wire was removed.

But that's not the point.
The point is that contrary to what is being asserted in the article, the Shark is by no means struggling and thrashing near the surface of the water but instead, it appears totally unfazed and is nonchalantly sucking down ikan puri, possibly offered from a bagan in Cenderawasih Bay; and even when the diver pulls at the wire right inside of the wound, the Shark hardly flinches and also does not swim away but continues feeding after the intervention.

Remember this post? Sure you do! :)
Methinks this video is once again evidence that Sharks perceive pain, if at all, completely differently - just imagine the reaction of any Mammal in an analogue situation!

Anyway, just saying - and yes, nice feel-good video!
