At around 5:45 in the morning of June 9, the whale shark was close to shore rescued and being examined by Physalus’ Dr. Alessandro Ponzo, an Italian veterinarian and his team who declared that the 4.2 meter whale shark is a male and its age is 2 years old.

The whale shark after the brief examination and tagging by the Physalus team was returned to the sea guided by a banca.
