On Saturday March 13 2004, just before noon, a megamouth shark washed ashore in Sumatra.
One of the rarest seen sharks in the world, the megamouth was discovered in the tidewater on
Saturday by locals. The shark, measuring 1.7 m in length, has since been frozen. The discoverers of the shark are
waiting to hear from scientists on what to do with the specimen.
If confirmed, this would be the 23rd sighting of a megamouth in the world.
