- A gigantic filter-feeding fish found in tropical oceans.
Whale sharks are massive sharks who inhabit tropical oceans. They are among the largest creatures in the game and are the largest of all fish. Colossal as they are, they are benign and harmless to dwarves, who are more likely to drown by being on water, rather than being attacked by one of these. An infant whale shark is called a whale shark pup.
Being non-vermin fish, fisherdwarves can't fish whale sharks, but they can be caught in drowning chambers and butchered for an immense amount of returns. As cartilaginous fish, butchered whale sharks won't provide you with bones, though you'll still get a skull from them.
Some dwarves like whale sharks for their gentle nature.
