Whale Shark (Rhincodon types), Cobia (Rachycentron canadum) and Woman swimming together. Location is the Andaman Sea, Krabi, Thailand. This is a classic display of primal instinctive animal behavior. A symbiotic relationship that ensures their survival.

This stunning Whale Shark (Rhincodon typus) footage was captured at Koh Haa islands in the Andaman Sea, Krabi, Thailand. Whale sharks are pelagic fish who feed on plankton, small fish and are the largest of the extant species. They are classed as vulnerable to extinction on the IUCN red list, due to being hunted for their meat and liver oil, however are now a protected species. Numerous Cobia (Rachycentron canadum) can be seen swimming around the Whale Shark. Cobia up to two meters long and are often mistaken for sharks. This footage shows their primal instinctive behavior as they use the Whale Shark for both protection and to scavenge unwanted food. This is a particular strategy adopted by Cobia to ensure their success and survival. An unrecognizable woman can briefly be seen swimming at the surface.
