As a marine biologist I personally know a very large number of professional fishermen and watermen In social settings they do love to tell stories But And this is a big but I have never known a single professional fisherman who when talking on the record to a scientist or researcher would purposely lie about something they had seen on the water They simply wouldn t do it The sea means too much to them to make up things about it when they knew they are going on the record Plus they would already be really self conscious about talking to a smart person about something that will raise yebrows Also all of the professional fishermen I know are psychotically brave Nothing on or around the water scares them They will work in any condition at any time The fact that a group of fishermen was too afraid to go to their normal too afraid to go to their normal grounds speaks volumes It would take something REALLY strange or Dangerous To Spook Them So Much Finally It Is Highly to spook them so much Finally it is highly that fishermen would create such a wild story to xplain why they had lost some gear Fishermen lose gear all the time It s part of the job They would not be in the least bit worried about losing a few lobster pots Given all that I have to conclude that the lobstermen in Case 1 were telling the truth They ncountered something they thought was a massive white colored shark It probably wasn t Megalodon But it could asily have been another undescribed and unknown species of very large deep water shark.

Entists are able to determine what this monstrous shark looked like what it ate and ven how it hunted its prey from as little vidence as a single hand sized fossil tooth In Megalodon Fac. ,
