Ahhhh... but what do you think when someone first found the whale shark? ITs  hugantic!!!.. and its not agressive. And look at its beautiful colors.
                      Like a cheeta almost
And the tiger shark
                    Beautiful stripes.
And what about the hammerhead?
                   If noone knew about that.. and someone came back saying" OMH i seen a shark that looked like it had a bench for a head!"
everyone would have thought him nus.
So.. why not a purple shark with green spots?

yeah i'v read all three of the books and enjoyed them and look forward to see the movie and he says he's going to write a forth book oh and the bit about the sightings with the huge, yellow and green shark with spots, heres the link to those stories and a few other stories.  It's quite good, sorry if this link has been given before but anyway take a look at it.  I think the crayfish fishermen story is a good one to back up the theory about the existence of the carcharodon megalodon but the one about the purple and green shark with spots sounds to me a lot like a whale shark but the sonar records give a bit more life to the theory as there are not many explanations of what those objects could be.  Heres the link

Was about to make the remark about whale sharks, when I read Meg's piece.
Whale sharks are so big and slow-moving that you can easily locate them (and their nice looking spots). If you know their migrating patterns of course.
But, a spotted predator in the ocean is not a very good idea if you know what I mean. Anything with spots you can pin-point immediately.
And since we got to shark colouring, I'd like to mention that I don't find any reason why a meg should be white. Great whites are not white (they have a white belly). Can't see why nature would make a fluorescent predator, one that every prey can see from miles away. So that is definately a mistaken assumption.

On the whole issue, again, I have not seen a solid proof, so unfortunately (I'd love them to exist, I admit...) for the time being I have to be a "sceptic".

in the book, the megs were florescent beacuse they lived where there was no light, so they made their own.  

the spots might be there to mimic the dapple-pattern you get when light shines through water....but that would be a shallow-water critter, wouldnt it?

Zane Grey, a famous author at that time and his son Loren was deep-sea fishing off Rangiroa Island. Glancing over the boat´s railing, Zane Grey spotted an enormous "yellow and green shark with a square head, immense pectoral fins and a few white
spots". According to Zane the shark was "considerably longer than my boat, conservatively between 35 and 40 feet". Some New Zealand fishermen aboard who also saw the great shark agreed with Grey’s estimate.

Again, that fits more or less the description of a whale shark, no?

I like some of the points he made in the beginning, but I seriously doubt that a megaladon is alive in captivity. I believe that they may be out there in the ocean somewhere, but not in captivity. Besides, the pictures look pretty fake...but it was interesting!

THEY ARE FAKE!!

It's a promotional webbie for his book, The Trench.  That's how i learned about those three, Meg, The Trench, and Meg: Primal Waters in the first place.  i stumbled across there, for a second or two thought it was a spoof of some conspiracy theory or another, then realized it was an advertisement for a book, went out and bought the book.  

the books are good.  go read them!
