In Thailand, a group of fishermen are surprised to see a whale shark calmly swimming up to their boat. They decide to make the most of the rare opportunity by petting the whale shark before it swims away. What an amazing wildlife encounter!

Next, let's head over to a tide pool outside of the Monterey Bay Aquarium in California. The critters in there aren't nearly as friendly as the whale shark, but they're still just as much fun to look at. It's pretty fascinating how that little tide pool is teeming with life.
