Megalodon (Carcharocles megalodon) is the largest shark, at a magnificent maximum of 18 meters (59 feet), to ever have dwelled in the oceans.  Thanks to Shark Week, and the power of the internet, some people actually believe Megalodon still exists.

Dr. M from Deep Sea News explains why that is not the case.

  1. At least there are still giants to catch like White Sturgeon. And if Megalodon still existed the beaches would all be closed for good.

  2. if megalodon exists, the beaches aren’t an issue except for the small young megalodons. its too nbig to go in shallow water, but it would be a danger to boaters.

  3. Megalodon possessed a very global, tropical distribution. It’s not like Megalodons were rare or elusive. They literally occurred almost everywhere. If Megalodon still existed, we would have seen or caught them.
