Rare Megamouth Shark Found in Philipines — And Promptly Sautéed with Coconut Milk and Eaten

1187098889The Megamouth shark (Megachasma pelagios) is so rare that only 41 has ever been seen or captured in history. The 41st was found off the Bicol peninsula on Luzon island. It was promptly carved up, sautéed and eaten by the locals. This comes only a couple months after an endangered bird was found on Luzon and promptly sold and eaten and poultry.

The Megamouth is half a ton in weight. The first such shark was only caught in 1976. For a rare video, click here. You can even get a poster . . . if you missed the lunch.

  1. Attorneys sum times kan’t spelt 2 well ither. Butt least we know ware two LQQK four are briefs.

    So does anyone know if the guy in the Bentley or was that a DoubleR will be bringing the Grey Poupon?

  2. Bron,

    How the hell did they get a megamouth shark in Hungary? 😉 lol Sorry, I couldn’t resist.

  3. Anon:

    these are just poor hungary people what would you have them do?

    Maybe Peta could set up a program where all of the dogs and cats they kill every year could be shipped to the Philipines to help save endangered species from the lunch line.

  4. Ah, but eating one’s own is the way to eternal life. so long as one First rips the heart out and prays to the volcanic gods of a bountiful harvest.

  5. Did you say wine or Whine?

    It depends on if the rare shark is truly endangered. You must also consider whether it has had white meat or dark meat pass through it. No one said anything about the bird.

    If white, by all means an Australian White Sinfadel.

    If Dark, by all means a South Texas mid 90’s harvest. Preferably a Merlot.

    But if it is not of either and it is truly sui generis, then humbly have a service and ask that in the next life it be elevated to a higher species.

    Do not forget to pray for the bountiful feast.

  6. What kind of wine does one serve with Endangered Species?

  7. No spelt check, no tartar sauce!!!! Be done with this.

    How do you like your shark served?

    I see a growing conspiracy. First, Judges, then the sharks, next it will be the attorneys. Oh, no, no, no, no. Not that.

    We have to feed to.

    I can take a Joke, well I try to. W was missing from Texas for 4 years, did anybody see him, did anybody care?

  8. “Megamouth” sounds like the new Lent fish sammich from Burger King. Also, please keep up the typo’s (41 has been seen); this is the only site I feel comfortable writing on. Spell-check be damned.
