Koda Maja So a length of rope tied to the boat is the Aussie idea of security?
Sounds about right.
Syd Midnight Normally that'd be overkill, but after all he was performing surgery on a giant shark
Jet Bin Fever Strange that Wes Anderson chose to cut this scene. I thought it was more moving than a lot of the others.
Vaidency I know that sharks and other large fish will sit patiently while smaller fish and sometimes seabirds pick parasites off them, but it does seem like quite a leap in logic that the whale shark realized it had something from a boat stuck to it, so it went and sat next to another boat and waited for humans to clean it off.
Have we been underestimating the intelligence of these things?
Either way, fascinating.
