With “Shark Week” set to begin Sunday, the Discovery Channel is suggesting that a gigantic, prehistoric shark called Megalodon still exists.
The accompanying footage is convincing to a degree, leaving viewers to wonder what else might have torn the entire tail section off a full-grown whale: A ship strike? A ship strike followed by shark predation. Or … Megalodon?
More evidence includes a photo taken in South Africa, 2013, of a dorsal fin protruding six feet out of the water. The shark-like fin belongs to a creature that was said to be attacking a whale.
