Video Transcript:

This video, provided by National Geographic, shows a community of fish traveling with the shark. It was taken from a camera attached to the back of a whale shark. On a number of occasions, we noticed that the whale shark was accompanied by an entourage of smaller fishes. Perhaps they viewed the big shark as a moving island in the featureless ocean.
