A species of shark that was discovered in 1976 when a U.S. naval ship caught one on its anchor. Scientists dubbed it megamouth, for obvious reasons. Since then, the shark has been proven to be extremely elusive. Only 100 specimens of them have so far been found, but every one that can be examined reveals new information about these strange sharks.
Megamouth sharks can grow up to be 18 ft. (5.5 cm) long. To fuel such a huge body, it needs a lot of food, but, surprisingly l, this big fish is not a big game Hunter. It's a filter feeder and most of its diet consists of tiny, planktonic animals, which it strains from the water.
