Does Megalodon still exist? For over 10 million years, this toothy huge creature ruled the world’s waters. Just imagine, the largest Megalodon tooth ever found is almost 3 times larger than the teeth you’ll find in the great white sharks of today!

Theories out there argue that these bad boys of the ocean are still around. But there’s no doubt they’re long gone and extinct. Despite blockbuster hit movies like 2018’s The Meg and conspiracy theories running rampant on the Internet, these prehistoric sea beasts no longer exist. Still don’t believe it? Just get ready for a big dose of scientific evidence!

SUMMARY:
- About 2.6 million years ago marked the beginning of the era known as the Pleistocene. At the beginning of this era, temperatures began to cool and glaciers started to form all over.
- While there’s no doubt that the Megalodon definitely went extinct, it probably wasn’t because they couldn’t keep up with whales in the cooler temperatures.
- Though the Megalodon were ferocious and scary, there were actually other flesh-hungry predators sharing the ocean that liked to eat a lot of the same things that these giant sharks did.
- One of the Megalodon’s biggest competitors in the deep blue during the mid-Miocene era was the now extinct genus of sperm whale known as the Livyatan Melvillei.
- By the end of the Miocene, the Carcharodon Hubbelli wasn’t afraid to go head-to-head with the mighty Megalodon when it came to hunting for prey.
- As time moved forward into the Pliocene era, whales were starting to disappear. While there were about 60 different whale species in the previous Miocene age, only 40 remained by the time of the Pliocene.
- At this time, the Megalodon had to put their game faces on and fight even harder against the great white sharks who were smaller and faster.
- Today’s marine life would be a little different if the Megalodon was still around. For one thing, we may not have the massive whale species we’ve come to know, like the Blue Whale.
- While today’s great white sharks aren’t even close to being as big as the Megalodon, they seem to be following in its fin-steps. The great white grows about 3 feet larger than its ancestors that swam alongside the Megalodon during the Pliocene.
