Scientists are urging the public to report largemouth shark encounters to increase scientific knowledge of this enigmatic species and help conserve its population.

A rare pelagic largemouth shark (Megachasma pelagios) was caught in the waters of Zanzibar. It was then sold at the local market for $17. This is reported by Live Science.

A fishing vessel accidentally caught a shark, whose body was then washed up on the beach of Pemba Island. Local residents picked it up there and decided to sell it.

This species of shark was first discovered in 1976 and since then less than 280 individuals have been recorded worldwide.

We will remind you that earlier a video appeared of how a killer whale single-handedly dealt with a great white shark, ripping out its liver.

The orca strangely ate seven whole calan and died
