They eat small fish in schools and zooplankton so they do depending on the species. Fin whales, humpback whales, Bryde's whales and sei whales all eat small fish.

Sharks can not eat whale sharks as whale sharks are proportionally bigger than sharks. Sharks may scavenge off dead whale sharks but the probability of live whale sharks being eaten is highly unlikely. Some species of shark are cannibals and babies will often eat each other while inside the womb.______________________________________________________________________________Just a short note to remind whale sharks (Rhincodon typus) were contemporaneous with C. Megalodon, and in the same waters.That contributed for the whale shark to be included in the megalodon's menu although they have been extinct for millions of years.
