It was a stunning sight out of some monster movie. A 36 foot-long whale shark was hauled into Karachi Fish Harbor by local fishermen on Tuesday.

The fishermen claim that they found the rarely seen shark dead in the open sea, reports Dawn.com, though some experts believed that the shark might have been killed after it got entangled in a net.

Weighing around 15,000 lbs., the whale shark was lifted out of the water by two cranes amid applause by onlookers.

A man, Haji Qasim, promptly bought the fish for a little over $2,000. The fish will be displayed to the public for three days. “Then I will sell the meat to the people running poultry meal business,” Qasim said.

Whale sharks are the largest fish in the world. They consume plankton and are included in the Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species, which means that the fishing of whale sharks is restricted.
