It seems like the megalodon has taken on a cryptzoological flair similar to Bigfoot, Nessie, and the rest. It makes for good TV but I prefer watching the stuff like the japanese biologists that went after the giant squid.
Yes that was an excellent program as well, really enjoyed the squid search. I never realized how aggressive squid are, those attacks were quite scary.

I totally agree! I find it hard to believe we've been chasing Bigfoot and still have no hard evidence. Megolodon existed once, we know for sure. So, no reason it couldn't exist still. Just will have to continue searching!

I watched it as well. It was a great documentary! How things live with that much of pressure on them is amazing!

Are you still watching? That boat attack was pretty scary, I didn't realize which video clip it was, I thought he was going to pull up a jellyfish after all that fight haha. But on a serious note those poor people, I doubt it was a megalodon attack though. Like they said, they were in a whale mating zone. You barge in on me during a sexual episode and you bet your buns I'm gonna do more than shove you lol.

Hahaha! Yeah, I'm not so sure about the attack or how the footage looks so amazing after resting hundreds of feet on the ocean floor. As far as the boat being turn apart, could have been a rock. I also find it hard to believe that a man hooked a shark and fought with it for two hours if its suppose to be the size of a school bus.

Oh I totally agree, he should have been in the water right as he hooked it. I doubt that's what was on the line, but he could have def hooked a shark. That underwater footage was crazy! Whatever that was it was HUGE!

Most defiantly! I wonder if it was a larger Great White. They have one that is tagged and been alive for around 25 years. Maybe there is a few larger than great whites out there.

Hah lol, that's too good, I can't stop laughing!
You know what, it could be true, I mean, look at the giant squid, it was shown in paintings that they can sink ships, now look at what we found, the colossal squid! Fighting sperm whales!
I really doubt that the colossal squid is the largest squid down there, have you guys seen the long armed squid!( sorry for the squid thing just thought it would be interesting) I think the colossal squid could have been the only capable of standing up to megalodon
This is the long armed squid, might have scared megalodon away lol, it scares me!
