One of nature's most majestic gentle giants has taken up residence near the Dubai Marina, according to photos and videos posted on social media:



Growing up to 40 feet long, the whale shark is the largest fish in the sea. Despite its size, the shark poses little danger to humans -- the filter-feeding creature dines mainly on plankton. Living for up to 70 years, the species is currently classified as Vulnerable by the IUCN.
