Was Jonah in a Whale?

Nope, no whale.

Jonah was gobbled up by a great fish, and a whale is not a fish. Doesn't even look like one.

The Hebrew word for fish literally means 'one of those things that greatly multiply'. Whales don't greatly multiply.

And Jonah's tree was also not mowed down by a humongous hell-worm. As Jonah reposed beneath a plant, a very tiny creature called 'little-purple-thingie' from which in those day purple dye was made, came and smote the plant. He probably came with a whole lot of little purple buddies.
