Don't worry! It's a whale shark. They're filter feeders and are known for non-aggressive behavior toward human divers. Mauricio Handler captured this image off the coast of Mexico's Yucatan Peninsula, where these sharks gather during the summer.

I saw the whale sharks at the Georgia Aquarium in Atlanta a few years ago. We were told that, while the shark's mouth could easily accommodate a small car, the esophagus is only about the diameter of a quarter. Amazing animals.
