If you had a chance to ride a Whale Shark would you? One Teen did and is not getting backlash for diving in! 

Whale Sharks are not a endangered species and it is not illegal to ride one but why would you? They are one of magically creatures of the sea and just getting a chnace to see one swim by would be breathtaking! the teenager that jumped into the water to htch a quick ride was brave sure but also stupid. He could have damaged the whales fin!
