During Shark Week 2013, Discovery Network aired a very misleading documentary in its “Shark after Dark” series called Megalodon: The Monster Shark Lives. The “documentary” led many panicked people around the globe to believe that the Megalodon is “huge and real,” prowling the planet’s waters ready to make you its next prey. Of course, the events portrayed in Megalodon: The Monster Shark Lives are about as real as those shown in Sharknado, and outrage among scientists and public figures erupted. Because Shark Week did Megalodon a huge injustice, we at Rice Catalyst are here to give you the real facts about the fascinating Megalodon, the monster shark that once lived.
