While a shark sighting isn't unusual- the type of shark is.
The megamouth was unknown to science before 1976-
The 12 foot, 660 pound female is the first megamouth to be discovered in South Africa.
Only about a dozen specimens, mostly males, have been found since the animal was discovered in 1976.
Scientists say they're anxious to dissect and study the shark.
The shark does have a massive mouth, but it is harmless to humans - the megamouth eats plankton.
