THE MEGALODON SHARK IS SET TO APPEAR IN THE NEWLY CONSTRUCTED HELL'S AQUARIUM!!!
Indeed, that is the conspiracy theory nurtured by the legion of 'megalodon believers' who have emerged on social media, in chat rooms and on forums, since the film opened. Only 63 confirmed sightings have been reported worldwide since. These 'megalodon believers' say titanically huge sharks do exist in the depths of today's oceans (pictured, a scene from The Meg). This 1,500-mile-long canyon in the Earth's crust is more than 35,000 ft deep — 6,000 ft greater than Mount Everest — and is the deepest point in the world's oceans. Sadly, for Jaws fans, but happily for swimmers, when it come to megalodon, the scientific consensus seems to be a clear 'no'. When the climate cooled some three million years ago, they proved incapable of following their prey into cooler waters and thus became extinct. So, as shark hunter Quint in Jaws didn't quite say: 'We're not going to need a bigger boat after all.'
Play it now. Crucially for conspiracy theorists, the Trench was fully formed more than 1.5 million years ago, when megalodon are believed to have disappeared. So, could a killer shark three times as big as the biggest great white be lurking in the deepest depths and devouring prey, including seals, other sharks and whales, with its razor-sharp 6 in teeth? Take the colossal squid, which was considered to be the legendary product of sailors' fevered imaginations.

It is only in the past 40 years that bodies of entire creatures have been found. The believers tend to agree on the location of megalodon's primary lair: the Mariana Trench in the Western Pacific. But at 35,000 ft, the only prey are tiny shrimp-like creatures called amphipods. So, if these giants can lurk unseen for millennia, surely the same is true of megalodon? Of course, if this movie were more true to life, the characters playing scientists would surely be set on safeguarding any creature that had survived millennia for the purposes of research. As for physical evidence, a deep-sea dredging expedition in 1875 by the Royal Navy corvette HMS Challenger pulled up a pair of megalodon teeth near Tahiti. Certainly, the Trench is a good place to hide; pilots in submersiblets have only twice ventured nearly seven miles down to its furthest reaches, an area called the Challenger Deep, in 1960 and 2012. Most damningly, megalodon would have to cope with the freezing temperatures found at these depths, and it evolved exclusively as a warm-water species.
