Swimming With Whale Sharks


A diver almost became a real-life Joan-ah thanks to a perfectly timed photo which made it look like she was being eaten by a whale shark.

Marine biologist Kori Garza was diving off the coast of Papua, Indonesia, on January 9 when she was greeted with a giant shark measuring almost seven metres in length.

As the giant animal swap around the 27-year-old, diving partner and friend Etoile Smulders captured the moment the shark passed overhead.

At that precise moment, the top half of Kori’s body was completely covered by the animal’s huge body, revealing just her legs, making it look like she was being eaten by the whale shark.
