Pakistani Fishermen Found a 40-Foot Whale Shark In the Arabian Sea [UPDATE]

This is why the sea is incredible and terrifying.* Pakistani fishermen reeled in this giant whale shark today. From MSNBC:

The Express Tribune, a Pakistani newspaper, reported that the 40-foot fish was first spotted ten days ago in seas about 150 km (93 miles) from the city. Mehmood Khan, the owner of a local fishery, said the shark was unconscious at that time and other reports said that it was found dead Tuesday.

*While whale sharks may be gentle giants, the idea that such mammoth creatures exist 20,000 leagues under the sea is still a little scary.
