"Whale sharks are not mammals but got their name because of their immense size and whalelike tendency to filter-feed on the ocean surface. Most sharks are known for their intimidating teeth, but whale sharks fascinate scientists for the opposite reason: They have a unique, three-part filtering system that is more complex than those of whales and other filter-feeding sharks. The setup is so effective that modern bottling plants employ it."
