I've heard before, that non-fossilized megaladon teeth had been found, though I never saw it anywhere substantiated....
I think it's pretty possible, but perhaps not probable. From what we know of sharks though, they don't particularly go super deep. No reason that it couldn't have done so and adapted I suppose.... I'd rather not meet up with a 60' great white though...thanks...
If I recall though, Benchley's story was loosely based on the real event of a rogue great white who went on a killing spree causing multiple deaths over the course of days, by swimming into a fresh water (but still fairly salty) river...could be off on that of course.

Posssible? Well yes it is possible, Look at the Coelacanth, a fish that was believed to have been extinct the last 66 million years ago but has been found to be alive and well. I saw one back in the 80's at the Tokyo Aquarium.
There is a great deal of argument as to if the Carcharodon Megalodon has survived. I am including 2 sites for you to reference. One is Pro for the possibility of Carcharodon Megalodon still being around today. META-RELIGION
The next one contains arguments against thier survival
No Megladon Survival
There is much that we do not know of our planet and the life that it contains.
I do not think that they are still around but that can change if they discover one. I beleive that the latest fossil is said to have been around 10,000 years old so... maybe ?

An extremely large possiblity that this creature does exist. Just the thought of how vast the oceans are, theres no way of knowing for sure.
