LESLIE’S TRIVIA BITS: July 24, 2017 Whale sharks, the biggest sharks in the world (and the biggest fish in the ocean) have teeth, but they don’t use them for chewing. Instead they suck in gallons and gallons of water and filter it through their rows of raspy teeth to catch all the plankton, plants and tiny sea creatures they need to...
