A huge whale-eating shark dominated the oceans millions of years ago. Its evolution has been the topic of heated debate among scientists for over 150 years. Until recently, a lot of paleontologists were sure that one of the most ferocious marine predators of our time, the great white shark, descended from the mighty megalodon.

Shark Week 2021 is the straw that broke my back and is a new low in the quality of programming provided to the People by Discovery channel which is following a spiraling trend to create absurd fictional exploitation of the most negative shark stereotypes in the pursuit of ratings and seeking to create the most unasked for “entertainment” in the form of comedy celebrity variety shows such as 2021's Brad Paisley and Tiffany Haddish Shark Week specials and Jackass Sharkweek. This trend makes me wish for the fictional mockumentaries such as Megalodon or Voodoo Shark (although the found footage horror movie vibes are far superior in Submarine and Megalodon than the far inferior Voodoo Shark and it's ilk). I let of some stress and walk through my criticism of shark week as a significant event in scientific entertainment and it's ideals versus it's modern incarnations and how to save it by addressing real world issues specifically the internationally illegal slaughter of sharks and those that fight to save sharks.

So let's imagine it's true. After years of wild speculation, crazy theories, and dubious findings, it's finally been confirmed. Megalodon, the greatest shark of all time, has been spotted in the waters of the South Atlantic. And now a group of researchers is preparing for the expedition of a lifetime: they'll need to locate, catch, and tag the ocean predator to further study its behavior. First of all, they need a fishing boat large enough to withstand the weight and lunge force of such a huge shark. At the moment, the only vessel close enough to what they need is a former crabbing boat refurbished to catch and tag great white sharks. But although great whites are the largest modern predatory sharks, they're still much smaller than the megalodon. A great white shark can grow up to 20 feet in length and weigh over 2 tons. The megalodon reached 60 to 80 feet and weighed whopping 50 tons... Learn more about your ad choices. Visit megaphone.fm/adchoices

Surely such a majestic creature couldn't disappear without a trace? And indeed, there have been several cases when witnesses were sure they had seen the Meg. But could it be just their fear talking? The Megalodon, which means "big tooth," is the largest shark ever to roam the Earth's seas and oceans. It reportedly lived 23 to 3.6 million years ago and was truly enormous. Its bite was more powerful than that of a T-Rex. And no wonder - not only did the animal have super-strong jaws, but its teeth also reached 7 inches in length! Even better, the Megalodon had about 300 teeth growing in at least 6 rows. The shark itself could grow up to 59 ft - that's twice the length of a London double-decker bus!

This Top Predator Ruled The Oceans For Nearly 20 Million Years. Welcome to June 15th, 2021 on the National Day Calendar. Today we celebrate menacing smiles and amazing views.  Today we celebrate a creature whose pearly whites reigned the oceans for more than 20 million years.  I'm talking about a prehistoric shark known as megalodon.  Each of its 276 serrated teeth measured nearly 7 inches and its 11 foot wide smile was probably due to its being at the top of the food chain. It is supposed that this 60 foot creature went into decline at the dawn of the Ice Age, when food became scarce.  Megalodon also had to compete with smaller, faster sharks such as the modern day Great White.  On National Megalodon Day, check out fossil and dinosaur museums near you, and be glad you can view that menacing smile from a safe distance.   Have you ever noticed how being out in nature can automatically boost your mood?  On Nature Photography Day why not bring that feeling home with you? Most smartphones take amazing pictures, and you don't have to be an expert like Ansel Adams to capture the moment.  Great pictures tell great stories, and this is your chance to bring your vision to life.  Sharing them on Social Media can inspire others to take in their own view. We could all use a break and the natural world is a ready oasis, even if your National Geographic adventure extends only to the backyard.  On Nature Photography Day, answer the call of the wild and watch your day get a little brighter.  I'm Anna Devere and I'm Marlo Anderson.  Thanks for joining us as we Celebrate Every Day.

Who would win in a fight between a Megalodon and a Titanoboa? Well, let's figure out! That would be a very unusual match. But it'd also be spectacular and intense. Okay, Megalodon! This species went extinct about 3 million years ago, but there are good reasons why it's now a legendary animal. It's the biggest shark that ever existed, and it was a super-powerful predator in its time. Titanoboa is way bigger than any other snake. It lived in the swamps of Colombia, and it was the real boss of the area. Titanoboa could eat absolutely any animal it decided to hunt, and it faced no competition. It could swallow a giant turtle or even a crocodile. It looked like a modern boa but behaved like an anaconda. And that's a very scary mix. But could it stop a giant shark?

Tyrannosaurus Rex existed about 70 million years ago. No one could defeat him in a fair battle. The largest T-Rex ever found was named Scotty. His hips were about 12 feet tall. But if Scotty straightened his back, he would be about 42 feet tall. It's like putting 3 giraffes on top of each other. And if you wanted to pet this cute guy on the nose, you would have to stand on the shoulders of 7 people to reach him. Megalodon went extinct about 3 million years ago, but legends about it are still alive. It's the biggest shark that ever existed, and it was a super predator in its time. Megalodon was about 50 feet long, which is more than a school bus! It was not only the most massive shark that ever existed but also the largest fish in the world. Its closest competitor in size was a modern whale shark. But he loses to megalodon by as much as 10 feet. But what would happen if T. Rex and Megalodon meet face to face? Who would win?

This week's episode is The Great White Shark, aka the  largest macropredatory fish of the oceans. First, what the heck happened to sharks 19 million years ago when 90% of sharks just disappeared from the ocean??? This unknown event didn't seem to affect other ocean animals, but wiped out between 70% and 90% of shark species. Scientists have no idea what happened to the sharks, and we'll have to wait probably a decade for more information, cause that's how science works. Of all the different shark species, the great white shark is responsible for most of the recorded shark bite incidents on humans. Does that make them bad? No. And, luckily for humans, we're either too boney for the Great White's liking, or we're able to get away before we bleed to death. You might think White Sharks are related to the Giant Megalodon (which could literally grow to the size of a semitrailer), but they're actually more closely related to Mako Sharks, which you've probably never heard of.Due to recent scientific research we've recently learned a lot of about Great White Sharks that we didn't know just a few years ago.

There were many kinds of mosasaurs. The smallest was a mere 3 ft long. The average length was 13 ft at the most. They weren't dinosaurs. These creatures were reptiles. Their close relatives are snakes and monitor lizards. They had short limbs with webbing between fingers and wide tails with broad triangular plates on them. While swimming, the critter kept its body stiff to reduce the drag through the water. The only thing that was moving was its mighty tail. Mosasaurs needed air. That's the reason they preferred shallow coastal waters. They eat pretty much anything: from fish and mollusks to sea birds and turtles. Mosasaurs went extinct about 66 million years ago. But have you ever thought about what the ocean would be like if the mosasaurs were still alive? And by the way, if Megalodon came face to face with Mosasaurus, who do you think would win?

Сould Megalodon sharks still be alive in the deepest parts of the ocean? Science tells us that Megalodon sharks are extinct. Given that it was a massive shark with noticeable feeding habits, we guess that if Megalodon sharks were still roaming the oceans, they would probably have been spotted by someone by now. But perhaps not if they lived in the deepest place on Earth: the Mariana Trench. Learn more about your ad choices. Visit megaphone.fm/adchoices

The gang discusses two papers that look at the ecology of the ancient shark Megalodon. One paper uses our knowledge of modern sharks to fill in the missing data on what Megalodon could have looked like, and the other looks for evidence of Megalodon nurseries in the fossil record. Meanwhile, Amanda cares too much, James spreads “facts”, and Curt would really like to find a segue.   Up-Goer Five (Curt Edition): Our friends talk about two papers that are about a really big angry animal with large teeth that moved through the water and is known by a lot of people. This animal with big teeth lived a long time ago and would have eaten other really big animals. But because most of this animal is made of soft parts, we do not know a lot about what it would have looked like. So the first paper uses other animals which are very close to this big animal (but not as big) and see how they all look to see if bigger things look the same. They find that they can guess what parts of these animals should look like just by looking at their teeth, which is cool! They then use this to guess what this really big old animal could have looked like. The second paper looks at how these big animals would have raised their babies. Some places where we get teeth from these big animals do not have a lot of big teeth, while other places do not have a lot of small teeth. This paper looks at these places to see if the change in how big the teeth are is important. They find that some areas really do have more small than big teeth. Some areas also have more teeth that are between being big or small. It seems that smaller animals (babies) lived in some areas, and then when they get bigger they move out.   References: Herraiz, Jose L., et al.
