A megamouth shark was found alive, stranded on the shoreline of Hinunangan in the Philippines on September 5, 2008.
Measuring 213 cm in length, this megamouth was pulled back into the water where it presumably swam back into the ocean. No photographs
were taken, however it was positively identified by AT-Fisheries as the same species of fish found in this region in 2007 (see
Megamouth #40 for more information on that specimen).
