lol! 'Diver Shat in his wetsuit!' is to put it minimally.

I have a friend here in NE Florida that commercial dives offshore near the Gulf Stream. He has been rescued 3x because he was separated so far from the boat they lost him. But, one day they were on or near the bottom by a reef when what I call it, a river of great hammerheads cruised by. He said it had to be a mile or two long and 400 yards across and 50 yard tall. There were thousands upon thousands. The great hammerhead is one of the man-eater class. They held onto the reef scared to death and waited for the whole group to pass before going back to the surface.

An impressive animal, but not even close to Megalodon.
Thanks for the thread and video.

They must stop feeding it, it need a diet. Beautiful though.


If it came from the Shark Week show last night, she's a beast from Guadalupe Island where the heavily pregnant females go to hang out. She likely looks that fat because she's the shark equivalent of 8 or 9 months pregnant.

Just to put things in perspective, here's a megalodon tooth I found a while back....

Definitely not something I'd ever want to come across...

I can see it. "That's not a tooth. Now THAT's a tooth."


I read this about 15 years ago: Meg. It's not LOTR but not a bad novel.

I wonder how many tons of fish it would take to feed a Megalodon.

When they were around, the megafauna were plentiful. The lack of food sources alone would make it nearly impossible for them to survive in the modern world.

A pantload imo. I have a theory that the Meg devolved. Into great whites. It couldn't keep it's size and survive. As Dr Malcolm said in Jurassic Park, "Life finds a way."

It has a sequel. I guess he wrote three or four of them. I only have the first two.

It was on shark week and it was 21+feet in length and they said 5-6feet thick and about 5 thousand lbs!!! Lol that's a huge shark. They also said it was probably pregnant that's why it's so thick, but the native Mexicans said that they've seen 25+ ft great whites there too. Amazing sized animals.

It's a matter of semantics but if, as I'm sure is the case, Great White is a descendant of Megalodon, I'd hardly consider that "devolving".

Maybe you just meant "got smaller."

Great White and most of the other shark species for that matter are supremely well adapted to their environment, as evidence by how little they've changed in millions of years.

No I don't think they do. I meant some type of mutation caused by some type of disease. I used cancer as an example.

I think the vid in the OP is actually few years old. I really can't even stand to hear the word "Megalodon" without becoming enraged at modern once educational networks such as the discovery channel that just pump out sensational 'reality' natureporn for ratings. That hoax of a documentary they released a couple years ago about the "Megalodon" was the last straw for me.

Looks like an "average" Great White... about 16 feet or so... they can grow larger, too.

A large, regal beast, no doubt... but no Mega here.


Yes, "she" looks bigger because it's actually pregnant!
