Despite this being a non-ceph piece of news, I thought readers, doubtless interesting in all forms of underwater bizarre fauna, would be interested to know that the 18th recorded megamouth shark may have been spotted last Monday off the coast of California. Here's a link but no photos I'm afraid: Megamouth news Two other stories closer to Steve and Kat; Megalodon teeth have just been dredged up by a NIWA vessel near Norfolk Island: Megalodon discovery And finally, an exceptionally rare specimen of the Ginkgo Toothed Beaked Whale was washed up last month on a Taranaki beach and will hopefully go on display at the Te Papa museum in Wellington soon. This is the first for New Zealand and twentieth in the world. This whale is believed to be another species which feeds on fish and squid, grows to about five meters in length and was named after the shape of its teeth which resemble the leaves of the ginkgo tree.
