Remora hitching a ride on a whale shark's tail. I wonder if this one is more of a thrill seeker since he went for the craziest place instead of just hanging out on the body, or pectoral fins like his buddies!

The fish eggs that the whale sharks are feasting upon are very visible going into this shark's mouth.
What has to be very irritating is the remora that is latched onto it's freakin' tonsils!!!! Man, that makes my throat tickle!!!
