Earlier this week, a 15-foot megamouth was found along the shores of the Philippines. Although the male megamouth was dead, it creates an opportunity for scientists to study, observe and learn more about the species.
Namely, that they’re crazy looking.

Many previous encounters of the creature have been near but not limited to Taiwan, Japan or the Philippines. The first one ever was found in Hawaii.
The video below shows the a megamouth shark found in Japan last year being dissected. It’s pretty gross!
