Megamouth Description
  The Megamouth Shark is easily recognised by its huge, soft head and large mouth which is positioned at the anterior margin of the head. The inside of the mouth is silvery, and the jaws are covered with many small, hook-like teeth. The Megamouth Shark has two unequal sized dorsal fins, a strongly heterocercal tail, and lacks any distinctive body markings. Its color varies from grey to blueish-black above and is pale grey below. The tips of most of the fins are usually white.
