Pier goers and a kayaker got a nice and rare surprise when a basking shark came to visit Panama City Beach this past weekend.  These are very large sharks that, like whale sharks and many whales, filter feed on plankton rather than hunting larger prey….AKA pretty much harmless.  I’m so jealous of this guy!!!!  Check it out.

Shout out to The Florida Blogger for reminding me about this!
