See Divers Rescue Four Car-Sized Sharks
When a team of recreational scuba divers spotted four whale sharks stuck in a fishing net, the animals were veiled by a thin mesh netting. Trapped just off the coast of Cenderawasih Bay, West Papau, Indonesia, the huge fish were freed after a heroic effort to coax them out of the net.
Whale sharks are the largest fish on Earth. The four sharks seen in the video were still juveniles, but adults can grow to be the size of a school bus.
The endangered whale sharks were trapped in what appeared to be a midsized trawl net, a type of net typically used to catch large groups of fish or shrimp. In this case it was likely used to trap anchovies.
