Body temperature stability observed in the whale sharks

Body temperature stability observed in the whale sharks, the world’s largest fish Itsumi Nakamura, Rui Matsumoto, Katsufumi Sato ABSTRACT: It is generally assumed that the body temperature of large animals is less likely to change due to their large body size, resulting in a high thermal inertia and a smaller surface area to volume ratio.
