Enrikez thanks for posting this fantastic sized shark. It is truly a monster. It could be a megalodon shark, but no one will know for sure until it
or another one like it is caught. Even though scientists say that the megalodon shark is extinct, sightings have been made, and teeth marks and bite
marks have been measured in modern times indicating a larger shark is out there in the waters of the Oceans.
It is doubtful that it is the green shark, because it is too large for the green shark, and it is not any of the other known sharks because of its
size, and its coloring, and because of its head structure. This video was supposedly taken in 1990, and the shark was then stated to be a green shark
by Eugene Clark; but if you look up Eugene Clark, he is not a shark expert, so his statement that this is a green shark cannot be taken biblically.
Look at the PVC, the other fish, and then the width of this shark, it is incredible.
One of the posters down below the video states that the announcer of the video states that the other sharks are 2 meters in length. I'm not sure if
that is true or not, but by my own personal estimation of what I see in the video, I think the other sharks are around one meter in length for sure.
I'm making my own personal observation of the length of the shorter sharks by looking at the PVC pipe down below all of them. I would estimate that
the largest diameter PVC pipe in the video is at least 2 inches in diameter, which would make the PVC structure in the video at least one meter
square. If the PVC in the video is larger than what I estimate, then the fish are larger yet.
If those fish are one meter in length, then the little shark bumping into the larger shark, gives an good estimate of the larger sharks size. Also
when the larger shark is getting its food off of the PVC structure, it is covering the structure, and then some in its width. If the length of the
shark is 8 times the width of the head and the head of this shark is one meter wide, then this massive shark should be approximately 8 meters long;
close to 25 feet.
On the other hand, if the PVC structures diameter is larger than 2 inches in diameter then the stucture itself would be larger; possibly 2 meters
square, which would mean the smaller fish are 2 meters in length. Which would mean that the big shark is about 50 feet in length. So... I would
guess that the big shark is somewhere between 25 and 50 feet in length; which is quite large.
I'm no expert on sharks though, but I'm using logic. As you well know species of sharks thought extinct in modern times have been caught, proving
they aren't extinct after all, also the coelacanth, and the giant squid.
I think BASSPLYR forgot to put a decimal into his statement. He states the megalodon could swim as fast as 250 knots, this is impossible, because
that would be 287 miles per hour. I think he meant 25.0 knots which would be 28 miles per hour; I could believe that speed for a very short burst
from a shark; but I couldn't believe it from this shark, it moved too slow.
No person or scientist out there in our world can state that there is absolutely no megalodon sharks out in the oceans, until all of the oceans are
completely drained and every fish is looked at; and we know we will never see that in our life times hopefully. Until the oceans are completely
drained and every creature looked at therein; then there is still a chance that what once was proven to exist, still exists.
