Very unusual discoloration of the
pectoral fin tips. Totally white on both
sides.
Almost exactly a year ago, another white-tip whale shark was reported on the
3/7/07 at the same dive site Ras Za'atar
encounter number 307200712107
(RHardenstine) Double-checked the previous sighting with white tips, they are two different sharks
