The problem I have with the thought of a Meg surviving is that Megs were whale preds the same way that their smaller cousins Great Whites are seal
preds. They need the blubber to fuel their metabolisms.
When we were killing all the whales we could in the 17th, 18th, and 19th century, every whaling boat in existence was basically a huge chumming
operation for megalodons as whales were killed and slaughtered on the open ocean in a very bloody process. Not only that, but we created a sort of
prey problem for them by nearly wiping out their food sources.
If there really were megalodons in existence still (I'm not opposed to it being true), you would have thought there would be plenty of surviving
accounts in whaling literature of them poaching whale carcasses off the sides of whaling ships as not every encounter would have proven fatal, not
just indeterminate accounts of sea monsters.
And even if there were accounts of megalodons, they would have had an even harder time surviving the near extinction of whales than the whales
Nope, this had to be either an orca as they are capable and some pods specialize in shark killing or a large shark.
