  • would you ever venture in the ocean if he knew this creature could be lurking beneath you?

  • It's twice the size of a T rex.

  • Its jaws are big enough to crush cars, and it can swallow multiple humans at a time.

  • This'll ancient beast is called a mega Ladan shark, and if it had never become extinct, it would have a surprisingly large impact on our lives.

  • How would it change the way we use our oceans?

  • How big of a threat would oppose to people?

  • And what are the chances that these creatures have been hiding deep in our oceans all this time?

  • This'll is what if?

  • And here's what would happen if mega Ladan sharks had never become extinct.

  • Over the years, reports of mega Ladan sightings have emerged all over the Internet.

  • A lot of them claim that these giant sharks never went extinct, that they've just been hiding in the deepest part of the ocean.

  • The Mariana Trench.

  • Now you can't dive down there to check for yourself, but scientists say there's more than enough evidence to debunk these online accounts.

  • If Meg Alauddin sharks were still around, we definitely know about it by now.

  • our oceans would be a lot more dangerous.

  • Here's how we know that Mega Ladan Sharks haven't been hiding from us this whole time.

  • For starters, if Meg Ladan sharks still roamed our oceans, the last place they'd be going would be the Mariana Trench Megillah.

  • Dons were warm water mammals, so the frigid temperatures of the Mariana Trench would make it impossible for them to survive there.

  • Plus, if these enormous sharks still existed, we'd be finding their signature giant bite marks on other large Marine animals.

  • We'd also most likely have found at least one carcass or skeleton by now.

  • But that hasn't happened.

  • The only remnants we found of these prehistoric monsters are their teeth, and we found a lot of them.

  • The reason Megalodon teeth are so easy to find is because they produced a ton of them.

  • Unlike humans who only produced teeth during the early stages of life, sharks continued to produce new sets throughout their entire lives, losing their teeth almost every two weeks.

  • Their teeth would sink down to the bottom of the ocean, where they would likely be fossilized.

  • Most megatons would go through about 40,000 teeth in their lifetime That's a lot of remains for us to discover.

  • But because we've never found an intact Magadan, there's still a lot we don't know about.

  • Here's what we've been able to find out so far.

  • Mega Ladan Sharksfirst showed up about 16 million years ago, and they were a dominant predator in the ocean, measuring anywhere between 10 to 18 meters.

  • These giant beasts preyed upon anything from fish to dolphins and even whales.

  • Then, about two million years ago, they disappeared off the face of the earth, and scientists aren't exactly sure why.

  • One theory is that they became extinct due to decreasing food sources and increasing competition for that food.

  • Another more intriguing theory is that Meg Aladdin's simply couldn't adapt to the cooling ocean temperatures and that their prey kept moving to colder waters to escape them.

  • Regardless of the reason behind their extinction, you can't help but imagine how different our oceans would be today if they had survived.

  • It's estimated that a mega Ladan eight, about 1100 kilograms of food each day if they were still around and eating that much, then they're barely being a large fish left in the ocean for us and that wouldn't be the only problem for the fishing industry.

  • We could also see Mega Logan's tracking fishing boats and stealing the fish they catch, just like some killer whales do.

  • With ocean temperatures warming up again, megatons would be thriving and reproducing, resulting in even more of these giant mammals in the water.

  • That would spell trouble for maritime shipping operations, cruise ships and even beachgoers.

  • Megatons gave birth in warm, shallow waters, so a nice recreational beach swim could become very dangerous for us.

  • What would our planet look like if no animals went extinct?

  • Maybe one day we'll be able to bring old species back and find out.

  • But that's a story for another.

  • What if?

would you ever venture in the ocean if he knew this creature could be lurking beneath you?
