The Megamouth Shark, Megachasma pelagios, is one of the rarest sea creatures known to man. These sharks were first discovered in 1976 in Hawaii and since then only a handful have been encountered. The particular shark pictured above is known as Megamouth #6 as he was the sixth encountered and what is astonishing is that he was the first Megamouth ever to be photographed, filmed and studied in the wild.
