    On March 29, 1934, while working at the office of Dr W. Birtwistle, director of fisheries for the Straits Settleents and Federated Malay States, at Singapore, the captain of a coasting vessel came in for information. He had with him the picture and dimensions of a very large fish which he had seen at Labuan a few days before. No one there knew the fish, but I recognized it at once as a fine typical example of Rhineodon typus, the whale shark. The specimen was 25 feet long.
