This happened earlier in the year, but the video is making the rounds now.

A guy in a kayak was fishing off the coast of Panama when a massive whale shark approached his boat. The guy tells someone nearby that the shark is checking him out.  He probably didn’t know that whale sharks don’t attack humans.

The fisherman was able to capture the entire encounter on his helmet cam.
