Whats a MEG ?
Megalodon.

Quote

Megalodon was an ancient shark that may have been 40 feet (12 m) long or even more. (There are a few scientists who estimate that it could have been up to 50 or 100 feet (15.5 or 31 m) long!)

google Megalodon

"A man's ethical behavior should be based effectually on sympathy,
education, and social ties; no religious basis is necessary.
Man would indeed be in a poor way if he had to be restrained by fear
of punishment and hope of reward after death."

If nothing we do matters, then all that matters is what we do. The smallest act of kindness can be the greatest thing in the world.

I think the Megalodon died just like all the other dinosaurs.  (However that may be)

Actually, there have been recent 'sightings'.  It could still lurk in the depths of the ocean....

megalodon only apparently went extinct maybe even less then 10,000 years ago, so im sure theres a chance it could exist just maybe in smaller numbers

they could have found new places to adapt to, like some parts of the deep are warm,  the crust  heats these parts, like the marina trench, the meg was warm blooded like the great white and the mako, so it could live under these conditions...

There may be a few hiding out still, but their ecological niche may have been taken by the now, world's largest toothed marine carnivore, the sperm whale.

well if megalodon still lived till 10,000 years ago atleast im sure they would already have been living beside sperm whales, maybe even they hunted each other down till megalodons came extinct who really knows..

Yeah, considering how old the Earth is, 10 000 years is nothing.

I'm pretty sure I recall what might have been a pretty reliable sighting in Australia in the past ten years, I'll try to see if I can look it up.

Can anyone rember awhile back, there was a large Great White caught in nets which had been bitten in half by something larger ?

From memory they estimated that whatever this other shark was would have to of been over 30/40 feet long   ohmy.gif


I tried doing a google but all I found was shark attacks on people  sad.gif

That probably was a larger shark then, as Sperm whales have swallowed fairly large sharks whole, but with only one row of teeth in their bottom jaw, they could not bite a shark in half.  There is no reason to doubt that a really large, normal great white shark could reach nearly 40 feet.  There are a few rare giants of most lifeforms.  From the only surviving remains of "MEGS", their teeth, they seem to be virtually the same shark as the Great White.  The only reason there has been truly giant marine predators, was to eat the giant squid.  You had the gigantic shonisaurus in that role originally,  with dinosaur and marine reptile extinction, the Meg shark may have taken that role until the superior Sperm Whale appeared on the scene.  Megs may not have died out, they just grew smaller as their prey changed once the sperm whales took over as the supreme squid hunters.
