Dude, I think megladons are still around...anyone agree with me? If you're skeptical, read the book Meg by Steve Alten, it is an amazing book because it is so scientifically correct that it makes it so possible for these amazing creatures to exist...

yeah u rock...they really are probably still in the trench...they can't get past  the vents of heat that are in the center of the depths...if they found a way to do so, I think we'd all get eaten, like in Meg!  thumbsup.gif

Yup,MegFreak.I just don't think that those whales are the only big-gies out there in the ocean,well at least. original.gif Megalodons could well be the ancestors of those sharks that dwell in oceans one time ago.If the coelacanths could make it til this day,why not the Megs?? thumbsup.gif

   I'm sure its possible they are still around . But I dont think so . If they were , wouldn't we have found a corpse by now somewhere ? ( like with the giant squid ) .

In the way, the supernatural is what's behind the curtain. Normally, you only need to see what's happening in stage. That's how reality works. If you don't know then it's for the best. Actually, learning about the supernatural only increases the number of things you don't know.

Not sure, it's possible they are out there. Here is a link, which has some evidence for the existence of Megalodons. LINK

We know more about the surface of the moon than we do the oceans of our own planet. In all that open water, miles deep, unobserved, there could be anything, of any size. There could be whole groups of aquatic creatures we have yet discovered? dontgetit.gif

I agree with Kryso.
The sea is way too huge for us to rule this sort of thing out. 'Tis entirely possible for something like that to have survived, plus countless other species (what the plural of species...? huh.gif ) that we have no idea about.

You don't have to believe that it will or believe that it wont - just that it's possible.

but look at all the new evidence they are finding, you know the teeth that are 5 inches long and the huge 10 ft bite marks in whale carcases....it's all there....and it's hard to find a carcas of a shark because it's made of cartlige and it sinks, unlinke the giant squid who floats....

MegFreak, have you read Sea Monsters by Richard Ellis? It's very good and he has lots of info on sharks. He's also written some other books on squids, sharks, and sea-serpents. Also not to be nosey, but where do you live in the states?

My signature explaines what I believe in. WE as humans know more about what is in space than we do about our own oceans. Anything could be possible.

Megfreak, if you like books on Megolodon sharks, I recomend Meg and The Trench by Steve Alten. They are fictional, but good reads in my opinion.

Heres his site, Steve Alten

I will forever believe that anythings possible, no matter how crazy or unexplainable.

I really beleive that they still exist. Like everyone else said, we know more about other planets than we do the ocean. We can't even go to the bottom of it in some places, so what if the Megladon lurkes around down there.    ph34r.gif
