    A kayaker off the coast of western Ireland had a terrifying run in with a basking shark Tuesday. Up to 20 basking sharks (which, at up to 11 meters are the second largest species of fish after the whale shark) were spotted off the coast of the town of Kilkee.

    Inhabiting much of the North Atlantic Ocean, as well as large tracts of the Pacific, baskin sharks are typically found off Ireland's shores between April and September.
