Some whale sharks have developed the unique ability to suck fish straight out of the fishermen's nets.
Conservationists using radio tagging to track the sharks were able to film this unique behaviour at Indonesia's Cendrawasih Bay National Marine Park. The sharks appear to have learned how to make use of the nets as a way to treat themselves to an easy meal.
"The video has become an internet sensation, attracting almost two million views since it was posted two weeks ago."
