Rachel Brooks Art sells a cozy shark sweater that shows off the giant three sharks of the ocean.

Coming in as the largest fish in the sea is the whale shark. Weighing up to 50,000 pounds, these gentle giants can be as long as a school bus!! The basking shark comes in at number two. Both the whale shark and basking shark are docile filter feeders. This means that instead of relying on teeth, they eat by straining tiny food, like plankton, from the water. Despite the fact that they share a similar way of eating, they are not closely related at all and evolved their filtering methods independently. Basking sharks swim with their wide mouths open at a continuous pace, while whale sharks capture their food by quickly opening their jaws and inhaling a cloud of plankton.

The third giant shark of the ocean is the infamous great white. Though portrayed in Jaws as mindless, killing machines, great whites are really not as fearsome in reality. Found in cool, coastal waters worldwide, these predatory sharks get their name from the white found on their underbellies and weighing up to 5,000 pounds look miniscule next to the whale shark.

 

Turtley Awesome Reasons to Buy This Product

Rachel Brooks Art is run… by Rachel Brooks. She’s a hard working, small business owning Eco-Diver. Having been so inspired by the ocean and wildlife, she chooses to have her cozy shark sweater printed with the environment in mind. The ink used to print the giant three on the cotton blend sweater is vegan-friendly, 100% biodegradable, free of heavy metals and toxins, water-based, safe for infants and babies AND totally organic! What’s more, the printing process is waterless, which reduces pollution and does not create waste water polluted by inks!

The manufacturing company Rachel Brooks Art contracts for printing is also carbon neutral. Being carbon neutral means that the company offsets the amount of carbon dioxide it emits into the atmosphere by some other means. They also reduce, reuse and recycle where than can.

It’s just cool (but will keep you from being cool) and scientifically accurate for all the diving nerds like us out there!

Maybe this shark sweater isn’t for you? Rachel might have another… WHALEY… awesome design for you.

 

Who is Rachel Brooks?

Rachel Brooks is a UK based artist, wildlife guide and photographer. She has always loved drawing and painting, but set it aside to pursue a university degree in Zoology. After her graduation, she set off to explore the world and was inspired to pick up her camera and paints while visiting India. In the years that followed, she continued traveling and became a Scuba Diving Instructor, where she eventually crossed paths with me, the founder of Divine Depth. A lot of her creations have been inspired by her time as an instructor, from swimming with whale sharks in the Ningaloo reef in Australia to the small and weird critters found off a remote island in Indonesia. After 5 years on the road, she returned home to the UK and established Rachel Brooks Art. She now does a … FISHTASTIC… job at bringing the ocean into our own houses!
