Shark Week Countdown Challenge Day 1: The megamouth shark!
The megamouth shark is one of my favourite species of shark. Since they were first discovered in 1976, this species has been observed less than 60 times! Even so, it is believed that this is a species that is found worldwide in tropical and subtropical waters.
The megamouth shark is a filter feeder, similar to the whale shark and the basking shark. They swim with their mouth agape, and ingest plankton, jellyfish, and other small marine organisms.
This is a deep sea animal, however, recent evidence suggests that these animals may come near the surface in the night to feed. They may also have bio-luminescent tissues around part of their mouth to attract their prey.
I find animals like the megamouth so fascinating. We know so little about them, despite their massive size! 5 meters long or more!

Just swimming in the sea… And then suddenly being circled by sharks. Is that a bad sign?
