The megamouth shark is one of the rarest sharks in the world. There have only been spotted 63 times in recorded history, only 3 were spotted alive and 63 found dead, including this megamouth.

Fishermen spotted the shark on the beach and they suspect it may have died after being caught in a fishing net. In spite of their ugly appearance, megamouth sharks are not dangerous to humans. They eat plankton and jellyfish by filtering water through their many rows of teeth.

Scientists believe that megamouth sharks live deep in the sea and also been known to ascend to shallower depths during the night.
