It’s certainly not something you would want to come across swimming in the sea.

A rare, 13ft long Megamouth shark has been caught off the coast of Shizuoka in Japan, and has been providing a bit of excitement for locals.

The Marine Science Museum in Shizuoka held a public autopsy of the shark and 1,500 people reportedly turned up to have a look.

The grotesque shark reportedly survives on a diet of krill and shrimp and but scientists are keen to find out more about the creature.

It is only the 58th time ever that the shark has been spotted.
