If you ever find yourself stranded in the middle of the ocean, there are plenty of deadly creatures that you should be afraid of…namely sharks.
While some species may leave you alone, there are plenty of rare shark varieties that will not hesitate to kill and eat you because human flesh is delicious.
One of those species is the elusive megamouth shark. Lucky for us, one was caught off the coast of Japan earlier this month!
Megamouth sharks have only been known to science since the mid-1970s when one became entangled in the anchor of a navy warship near Hawaii. Since then, researchers report that there have only been 60 confirmed sightings.
The most recent sighting came when one was captured by a group of Japanese fishermen earlier this month. The men, who were casting their nets at Mie Prefecture, a few miles away from the Owase Port, managed to reel in the massive 16-foot, one-ton shark.
