Rare Shark Found, Eaten

A 13-foot, 1,102-pound megamouth shark—only the 41st such shark ever found—was recently discovered off the coast of the Philippines. Locals then celebrated the discovery by eating said shark. The shark is so rare that the species is classified by the International union for Conservation of Nature as “data deficient.” The shark’s huge mouth is filled with tiny teeth. Like the whale shark, it feeds on tiny animals and does not threaten humans.
