A whale shark has been making waves in Abu Dhabi over the past few days.
The endangered plankton-eating creature has paid an unexpected visit to the capital's shores and residents have been desperate to catch a glimpse.
A'l Bahar's beachfront was closed off to swimmers while it basked in waters nearby.
But Twitter user @jjennahh managed to capture some awesome close-up footage of the capital's new celebrity.
It can be seen hanging out in the water near Nation Riviera Beach Club, across from St. Regis Abu Dhabi.

Whale sharks are harmless to humans and live on a diet of plankton and small fish.
They are usually to be found in clean, tropical waters above 21C.
We're not sure if it is still in Abu Dhabi or not, but it certainly made an impression when it was here.
