Another rare shark has been caught

  • After spotting the rare goblin shark in Florida, another rare creature has been caught in Japan.

    The West Australian reports that fishermen brought up a megamouth shark and people saw the autopsy in Shizuoka. 

    The shark was 13-foot-long and came from a depth of 2,600 feet and the Japan Daily Press notes that less than 60 of these have been spotted and humans don't have to fear it since it feeds on plankton.
