Additional comments:
Attached are copies of the left and right side of a 8.5 meter male whale shark pictured in Sodwana Bay on 18 December 2008 at 10am. This whale shark has been sighted in Sodwana Bay on two previous occasions (2006 & 2007) and was easily identifiable by the severe scarring on the left gill area. He is already in the database so it should come up as a repeat sighting when you load it.
