We all love taking a relaxing stroll along the beach. Picking up shells, smelling the salt air, and occasionally stumbling upon a behemoth from the deepest depths of the ocean. Are these discoveries legitimate, or are they just one whale of a tale? What is the biggest fish that’s ever washed up on shore? Find out how whales end up washed up on shore, and perhaps even more interestingly, what we found inside of their bellies.
How many of these fish would happily chomp you in half if you met on their turf? You might be surprised how little you have to fear from these denizens of the deep. Learn about the basking shark, whale shark, and the humorously named Megamouth shark. And find out which part of a Giant Oarfish’s body it’ll happily sacrifice for a boost of speed.
Occasionally, we even get a get a glimpse at a brand new species. Observing creatures in their natural habitat is challenging, so it’s convenient when they pay us a visit on land. Such as the giant squid, who captures our imaginations and then rudely insists on living far too deep in the ocean for us to visit. How is it possible that we have only captured these behemoths on video as recently as 2004? See some of the largest sea creatures that have decided to pay us land-dwellers a visit.
