Flavio is a juvenile whale shark who has been a seasonal resident in the Bay of La Paz. Our first data from Flavio is from November 22, 2004 when he measured 4.6 meters. Since that time he has grown almost 3 meters and now (2014) measures 8 meters, about 24 feet. We think that when a whale shark is 9 meters long they are 22 years old so we can safely say that Flavio is less than 20 years old.
