Ok let's try this again. Everything I'm using in this post, is what I posted the first time. I don't think anyone read what I said.
Megalodons do NOT exist
1. Sharks regularly shed teeth, but we haven’t discovered any megalodon teeth that indicate they were recently lost.
2. Fossil evidence from megalodons suggests that they preferred shallower, warmer waters and would have inhabited areas rife with large prey needed to
sustain their populations. They also used coastal areas as nursing grounds.
3. So, we’ve only explored a tiny portion of our oceans. This is true. But the VAST majority of ocean life lives in the first few hundred meters,
where the sunlight can reach. Below that, life becomes highly specialized and large animals are rare. Megalodons were HUGE and would need a constant
supply of large animals to feed off. Maybe megalodons didn't go extinct but evolved into a smaller, specialized shark capable of living deep in the
oceans? Well then that wouldn't be a megalodon anymore.
4. One photograph in particular which stirred up a lot of controversy was an image that was presented in a Discovery Channel documentary (which was
fictional) showing the dorsal and caudal (tail) fins of a shark next to a submarine, spanning a whopping 64 foot. The image was fabricated. The
documentary was in fact a "mockumentary", which was stated in a very small disclaimer at the end. Plus, 64 foot (almost 20 meters) is larger
than the estimates of the entire body size of megalodons! This was only dorsal fin to tail! The “scientists” that appeared in this documentary,
entitled “Megalodon- The Monster Shark Lives,” were also actors. Sorry.
To sum up: No Megalodons do not exist today, they went extinct or evolved to be smaller (meaning that they are not a Megalodon
