So, for those of you who saw Shark Week, there were a number of incidents in South Africa and other locations that some of the naturalists thought might have been a 60'+ meglodon. They also went chumming with a 40' humpback whale decoy to find it. WHatever destroyed the decoy, and knocked the shark cadge sideways, also scared off the schools of great white sharks around the boat. What do you all think?

It was another mockumentary in the style of Mermaids: The Body Found.

I don't know, I think its a strong possibility. It could just be an over-sized modern shark too. One thing we could take in consideration, one Megalodon tooth they unearthed was only 10,000 years old.

90% of the ocean is unexplored still, so...who knows, eh?

Megalodon could eat an adult human with one bite....we are like a tiny chicken nugget to it.

Yep.  Had much the same disclaimers at the end too.
  • None of the institutions or agencies that appear in the film are affiliated with it in any way nor have approved its contents.
  • Though certain events and characters in this film have been dramatized, sightings of "Submarine" continue to this day.
  • Megalodon was a real shark.  Legends of giant sharks persist all over the world.  There is still debate about what they may be.

People are educated by television anymore. No thinking involved. Anything on TV is real, even when it is obvious it is not. ( disclaimers, description, etc. )

Funny, after the show ( that was a obvious fiction show ), they had an Actor from The Lord of the Rings, and an Actor from the  actual show doing a sit down interview.

While it would be cool, in a wow sort of interesting way, seems like one would have been accidentally caught in a net by now.

I thought that Megalodon was a shallow water feeder, not a deep water feeder, which is where everyone tried to make it out to be living now. Why would it live in the shallows for millions of years and then suddenly take the the deep water, all of them at once, so that no sign would remain?? Mathmatically it just didn't happen is my opinion. Megalodon is gone....

This is as real as Shark-nado.

Tht's not exactly true. The 90% refers to the bit between the bottom  and surface,a nd that's less true everyday.
And if such a huge creature did exist, there'd be a huge impact on it's food supply that would show up.

It was so much easier to blame it on Them. It was bleakly depressing to think that They were Us. If it was Them, then nothing was anyone's fault. If it was us, what did that make Me? After all, I'm one of Us. I must be. I've certainly never thought of myself as one of Them. No one ever thinks of themselves as one of Them. We're always one of Us. It's Them that do the bad things.

I only allow myself to be in one ET Thread at a time, because otherwise I'd only be posting there due to the numbers of True Believers over there. Same goes for the religion threads. Those can be post sink holes where you argue the same point over and over for 30 pages...

My husband and daughter sat down to watch a recorded episode from Shark Week. He said he was sorry they did.
Gladly, our daughter agreed and knew why.

A Megalodon? Really?

Ok, stop and think about it, you'd have to have a population of them large enough to breed and procreate. This is a what? 60 foot long 40 ton shark? It could hunt and eat Great Whites like they were rabbits. Whales would stand no chance, they'd eat a human like we would eat a shrimp.

TV hype for "Shark Week" Come on people, wake up.
