    No, it is entirely fish. It is all shark. It is important to remember that the common names of animals very often does not reflect their biology.

    Whales are mammals. Whale sharks are fish. Mammals cannot hybridize with fish. The whale shark is so named because it is a big fish, the biggest living species of shark that is known.

    No, but it's the biggest fish in the sea. Whales are mammals not fish.
