Dubai’s Famous Marina Whale Shark Has A Twitter Account – And It’s Hilarious

@dxbmarinashark is having a whale of a time.

Unless you’ve had your head buried in the sand for the last few days, you’re probably well aware that a giant, eight-metre whale shark has been spotted in the marina. Twice.

What you may not know, however, is that said whale shark has taken to Twitter to express its frustration and to find out a little bit more about its new home. Needless to say, it’s hilarious.

Usually found in wide-open, tropical waters, it looks like this particular whale shark has strayed a little far from home. Not one to let things get him down; he seems to be making the most of his impromptu holiday.

It’s not the first time a whale shark has been spotted in the murky waters of the marina, with several other sightings on record – dating all the way back to 2003.

Let’s just hope this one finds his way out safely and can get back to doing what he does best: eating plankton and scaring scuba divers.

We feel your pain, @dxbmarinashark. Check out footage of the incredible animal below.
