YouTuber captures 2 basking sharks feeding in Massachusetts

Drone video captured two basking sharks feeding off the coast of Gloucester Mass.

The basking shark is a filter feeder meaning that it grabs food from the water as it passes through its mouth... that’s why its mouth is open.

A typical adult is 20-to 25-feet long, and weighs five tons, these large fish are the second largest living, behind the whale shark.
