This six-gill shark (Hexanchus) was filmed during a submersible dive off the northeast coast of Molokai at a depth of 1000m (3280ft). The 2 red laser dots are 6 inches apart, resulting in a length of about 18 ft for the shark.
Great ecstatic live commentary by University of Hawaii Oceanography Professor Jeff Drazen!
Many thanks to Dr. Craig Smith (University of Hawaii) and Dr. Eric Vetter for permitting release of this footage which was obtained as part of their research data set"
Estimating the maximum size of C. megalodon is a highly controversial subject. However, in 1996 three shark experts, M. D. Gottfried, Leonard Compagno and S.C. Bowman, tried to solve this issue by developing a special method for measuring the size of sharks (including megalodon) with much greater accuracy, which was published in 1996. a[›] Using this new method, the maximum size of this creature was calculated to be 15.9 metres (52 ft) long with a body mass of more than 40 tons. But this calculation was based on a 168 mm (6.61 inch) long upper anterior tooth, which was the biggest tooth in the possession of these shark experts at the time. Since then, even larger C. megalodon teeth have been excavated which indicate that this creature could actually grow to more than 17 metres (56 ft) long.
