A child reaches out to touch a basking shark that was captured by fishermen in the port of Gijon, northern Spain, July 14, 2005. Local authorities believe the 250-kg (550-lbs), 3.73-m (12.24-ft) specimen is the same shark which had alarmed beachgoers in recent days. Basking sharks feed on crustaceans, invertebrate larvae, and fish eggs. REUTERS/Alonso Gonzalez PH/SA
