Hardly Ever Seen: The Alien-Looking Megamouth Shark Washes Ashore in the Philippines.

This mysterious creature which can live up to 100 years old, was caught by fishermen in the Philippines.

The rare and rather strange-looking Megamouth Shark (Megachasma pelagios) was discovered in 1979 when one was hauled out of the ocean by a US Navy vessel. Before this time, scientists could not even confirm they existed. They live in the very depths of the sea and are rarely seen by the human eye. This one, however, somehow washed ashore on Pioduran, Albay, in the Philippines.

These round-headed creatures with an unbelievable 50 rows of tiny sharp teeth have so far been seen 15 times in the Philippines and a number of times in Japan as well. But overall, they have only ever been spotted about 66 times in the world.

Villagers used a stretcher and iron rods to carry the rare 15-foot (4.5-m) Megamouth shark.

The creature was nicknamed “Toothless” because it looked like the nightfury in How to Train Your Dragon.

These mysterious creatures can grow 17 feet or longer and apparently they don’t taste too bad. The last one discovered, according to Marine Wildlife Watch, was eaten by the people who found it.

Although you probably may not want to meet one of these creatures in the water, they are of the harmless, plankton-eating variety of sharks, just like the basking shark and whale shark. Of all the weird and wonderful creatures I’ve seen in the world, this one will surely rank in the top ten.

People From Across the World Hilariously Try to Replicate Australian Accent.

Cheddar May Hey Hoe?

People from across the world have been captured trying to replicate an authentic Australian term by traveler Kieran Murray during his six month continent-hopping holiday. Travelling through America, Europe and Asia, the young Australian man decided to make his holiday slightly more memorable by asking people he met to try and convincingly repeat after him, all the while filming their responses.

Despite how simple the term ‘G’Day Mate! How you going?’ is, people from across the world from Eastern Texas to Berlin struggle to come to terms with it and hilarity ensues when Kieren’s new friends attempt the phrase, certainly not without effort, but without any real results. Only a small handful come anywhere close to sounding authentically Australian.
