    Possible Megalodon Found In Mariana Trench


    Click here if you cannot see the above video...

    The deepest portion of the Pacific Ocean, the Challenger Deep, is located in the Mariana Trench in the western Pacific.

    Recently, Japanese researchers have conducted an interesting experiment in the Suruga Bay, not far from the Mariana Trench, the deepest spot in the world Ocean.

    The researchers put a container with some smelly bait on the bay bottom. A special video camera was attached to the wall of the container. The researchers peered into monitors to see what would happen with the container and the bait.

    The smell of the bait attracted a shoal of deep-water sharks. But then the researchers saw something incredible that left them speechless. Suddenly the sharks scattered in all directions and researchers saw an incredibly huge monster on the screens of their monitors.


    The giant slowly soared before the video camera at a depth of about 1.5 kilometers. The length of the sea Goliath was over 60 meters (more than 180 feet). It was not clear what the giant was in fact.

    Researchers failed to answer the question, just made conjectures concerning what the creature may be. They said that might be a sleeping shark, the largest shark . Even now people know just few facts about these sharks.

    They have been hiding in the dark ocean deeps for millions of years. People have never seen live sleeping sharks as well as giant squids. Only once, in 1964, a bulk of a dead sleeping shark was cast ashore in Indonesia; it was just a very young shark judging by its size of 26 meters. ..PRAVDA 9/20/03
    What is a Megalodon?

    We know bollocks all about what's down there. Why are we bothered about space when we haven't fully explored our own planet?

    Awesome. But if we do get down there, humans will just kill them off.

    They might prove to be difficult to kill at that depth.

    Be an optimist - at least until they start moving animals in pairs to Cape Canaveral.

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mega_Sh..._Giant_Octopus - info on the film

    But apparently a japanese scientific team are researching into a giant octopuss and a Megalodon.

    You don't thing it could be a scene from the film!!
