Basking Shark spotted off the Dutch coast!

Thinking of better integrating into Dutch society and doing the New Years Dive  this year? Better think again, recently a basking shark was spotted off the coast of Zandvoort and then again spotted along the Belgian coast. Seeing these kinds of sharks in the areas is not normal but at the same time not dangerous. These sharks have no teeth so are of little to no danger to humans and eat mainly plankton.

Do you know what a basking shark is? It’s ok, I didn’t either, check out Wikipedia for more info.
