Basking Shark Caught Off John O'Groats
The basking shark has tiny teeth and is harmless to man. Basking sharks often swim in groups of three or four but as many as 100 have been seen at one time.
They can be spotted off the coast of Britain during the summer. Scientists have no idea where they go in winter. Itís thought that they either hibernate near the sea floor or move to other areas of the ocean.
