That worm was sooooooooo disgusting!

The megamouth shark didn't quite look real to me either. In that picture, it looks like something that Stephen King would have put in his books, it is kind of creepy.

I was thinking the same thing about the megamouth shark. It looks like something out of a child's book of deep-sea creatures. But, since it's pre-historic, I figured that it probably is the case. It's weird/awesome that they found one now. Even though I am a 'Shark' myself, I think deep sea creatures are some of the freakiest things to look at - that shark being no exception.
