Rare Megamouth Shark at the Sophie Rickmers

A 2 meter long Megamouth Shark came checking Aris and his buddy Suzanne out on 48m during their deep dive on the Sophie Rickmers wreck!! And then it disappeared into the deep again. Unfortunately there was no camera to prove this extraordinary encounter.

The Megamouth Shark is very rare and has only been sighted 55 times worldwide. On 13 March 2004 another Megamouth Shark was found washed ashore on Gapang Beach. This species is on display at the Cibinong Museum.
