If “Jaws” made you hesitate to go to the beach, the shark in the footage below will probably keep you from ever entering any body of water ever again.
Many people believe it to be the long-extinct Megalodon, which is said to have been 59 feet. Others have chimed in and said they believe it is a sixgill shark – which can grow up to 25 feet long, or a Pacific sleeper shark.
Whatever it is I don’t what to be anywhere near it.
The footage, reportedly filmed by Japanese marine biologist, was originally thought to be filmed in the Mariana Trench, but further research shows it was filmed in Japan’s Suruga Bay. I don’t care where it was filmed because I’m pretty sure I won’t find myself hanging beyond the reach of sunlight. Check out this massive thing:
