Sup Travellers?! Early last week, on a beach in the Philippines a terrifying creature washed up ashore striking fear in the hearts of those nearby. A creature from the depths. A giant among giants. The MEGAMOUTH SHARK!!!

Megamouth sharks are notoriously large; this particular specimen was 16 feet long. The megamouth shark is one of the rarest sharks in the world. There have only been 63 confirmed sightings in recorded history.

Despite their fearsome appearance, megamouth sharks are not dangerous to humans. They are known as filter feeders, meaning they filter water through their many rows of teeth for plankton and other goodies.

Scientists believe that megamouth sharks are mostly deep ocean dwellers. They have also been known to ascend to shallower depths during the night.

So it is very unlikely that you may ever encounter a megamouth shark in your lifetime but it's good to know that they are harmless to humans. They only look gnarly. Anyway, my name is Trinikid and you've just been informed.
