The rare shark appeared to have been caught in a net as his tail was missing and showed signs of being wounded. It is also possible that the fish had eaten poisonous organisms.

The head of the Bureau of Fisheries and Aquatic Responses, Nonie Anvola, said: “We are planning a display or preserve it at the Albay Park and Wildlife through taxidermy. If ever, this will be the third time we will have this process in the Philippines.

The Megamouth Shark is a rare deep-water creature with a massive open mouth that eats only plankton and jellyfish.
