I too would like to see your pics of a megladon. I would also accept brontosaur photos, caveman shots, wooly mammoth pics or triceratops negatives. How about it, anyone see any eating off their apple tree in their backyard this morning?

It is megalodon. And no since they have been extinct for over a million years, but I do dive for their teeth.

You do know that that Discovery Channel "documentary" was fake, right?

The primitive-looking coelacanth (pronounced SEEL-uh-kanth) was thought to have gone efxtinct with the dinosaurs 65 million years ago. But its discovery in 1938 by a South African museum curator on a local fishing trawler fascinated the world and ignited a debate about how this bizarre lobe-finned fish fits into the evolution of land animals.

I can see how small animals thought to be extinct could still be around. But an apex predator the size of a bus that eats whales for a living would be noticed.

Agreed. It's entirely possible that a sea dwelling animal would escape detection, but a top predator would likely be noticed. Especially a shark. Sharks lose teeth all the time, yet only Megalodon fossil teeth have been found. Additionally, whale bite marks would likely have revealed the continued existence of a Meg.

I'm not discounting the possibility that this shark still exists, just find it highly improbable. I also doubt anyone on here has a photo of such a shark. That would be big news if it were true.

I can easily imagine a Great White in the 2,500-3,000 pound class ripping into a 9 footer. Wouldn't be a big deal for something 16-18 feet long with a mouth the size of a 55 gallon barrel.

Mary Lee for example, tagged by Ocearch, is over 16' and weighed 3450+ pounds at the time she was tagged. I think a 9 footer would be a midnight snack.

My wife passed out while we were watching this last night on Discovery. So, over coffee this morning, she asks 'What happened, did they catch the big shark?" I looked at her with a straight face and said "Yes, yes they did. After chumming up a five mile slick, one of the guy hooked it on 30 lb. test with a 6/0 hook!"

Looking at me with her eyes still only half open, she says "Really?" Then it hits her. "NO THEY DIDN'T!"

I love mornings!

I still say this is what took out the missing Malaysian 777 airliner. It's all right here. Indisputable truth!



Last known cell phone transmission from the missing flight, a picture snapped out the window:
