Researchers Theorize Megalodon's Existence After Recently Spotting A 50-foot Shark

Most of us are afraid of sharks, but what if you are facing the biggest of its kind, the megalodon? Many think that it doesn't exist, and some believe that it is real. But did you know that researchers theorize Megalodon's existence after recently spotting a 50-foot shark?

Many people were left with the thought that the aquatic behemoth might still be hiding beneath the waves somewhere after watching the iconic movie titled "The Meg (2018)." In this film, a team of scientists is on a rescue mission on the ocean floor of the Pacific when they come across a megalodon shark that measures over 23 meters in length.

Many of you are now too scared to go on any kind of boat trip after seeing this film. Are you one of them?

This week, scientists were left wondering the same thing after they picked up on a massive, dark mass moving through the water. The Atlantic Shark Institute posted an image of a strange object its researchers spotted during a recent expedition to Instagram. They were left wondering, "Is the Meg real?"

The Shark Institute posted:

On a recent shark research trip we were all amused to see this shape appear on our fish finder for several minutes. Based on the length of the image we estimated the 'Meg' to be about 50 feet long, weighing in at 40 tons!

It's understandable if the possibility of the return of the enormous predator is enough to send shivers down your spine, but there's good news: it seems the scientists were wrong. There's a perfectly reasonable explanation for why the old meg is still as extinct as the dodo. The institute elaborated:

We waited for one of the rods to go off however, much to our disappointment, the shape started to transition into a large school of Atlantic mackerel that hung around the boat for about 15 minutes.

Here is the whole statement published on the Facebook platform:

Does the Meg exist? On a recent shark research trip we were all amused to see this shape appear on our fish finder for several minutes. Based on the length of the image we estimated the “Meg” to be about 50 feet long, weighing in at 40 tons!

We waited for one of the rods to go off however, much to our dissapointment, the shape started to transition into a large school of atlantic mackeral that hung around the boat for about 15 minutes.

So close, but so far! The Megalodon (Otodus megalodon), disappeared more than 3 million years ago and will likely stay that way, but, for a few minutes, we thought he had returned!

The comments from their Facebook page are listed below:

Rodolfo Salinas Villarreal believes that this type of shark may still exist today. He stated:

Oceans and seas remain unexplored and many species that have never been seen live in them. You never know what could be under water.

Thomas Widmer posted:

Utter nonsense! Take a look at the depth scale at the right edge of the picture. If it's in 'feet', that "shark" measures around 50 feet from belly to the top of its dorsal fin. If the depth is in fathoms (1 fathom = 6 feet) that would make it 300 feet from belly to dorsal fin. Tell us more lies, Trump isn't getting the airtime he used to get.

Finally, Joseph DeMare commented:

This is so close that one has to wonder if it might not be an adaptation to discourage sonar hunters like whales and dolphins. Could this be sonar mimickry?

Conclusion

Lastly, they stated: "So close, but so far! The Megalodon (Otodus megalodon), disappeared more than three million years ago and will likely stay that way, but, for a few minutes, we thought he had returned." The water is fine for swimming again and is safe for your kids and friends. Thankfully, they were wrong, and things would have been dire if the Meg had returned.

The Atlantic Shark Institute further stated:

"As noted by others here, it was meant as a joke. We noted that the 'Meg' transitioned into a school of atlantic mackerel after this screen grab was taken. While it would be equal parts fascinating, and terrifying, I don’t think we are going to see the return of the Meg."
