In this case, it is not going to lead to very much gossip, as the big mouth in question belongs to a megamouth shark. An animal that we know little about, the discovery of an intact specimen led the Smithsonian to request the creature be sent to them for study. The article below has more, readers, so I will say nothing else about this matter – other than it is quite exciting!

Rare Megamouth Shark Arrives at the Smithsonian
August 11th, 2020
In 2018, a large shark with a truly gigantic head was taken by fishers off the coast of Taiwan, causing waves among ichthyologists and marine biologists.
The elusive megamouth shark, Megachasma pelagios, is famous for a reason best described by its common name: it has an incredibly large mouth and lives in the sea. Megamouths were first scientifically observed in the 1970s. Since then, there have been more than 60 but less than 240 confirmed captures of individual sharks. This uncertainty shows how little scientists know about the shark. And no one knows how many live in the wild.
When scientists heard about the megamouth specimen, they knew it could hold key information about the mysterious species. So they contacted the Smithsonian’s National Museum of Natural History to arrange transport and preservation for the specimen.
