Shark Attack: Evidence of a Megalodon found off Vancouver coast.

Giant Shark kills Sperm Whale within view of witnesses.

(SNN) - A large sperm whale found dead along the shoreline 50 miles north of Vancouver, British Columbia, has marine biologists concerned, as the remains show tell-tale signs of a giant shark attack.

Witnesses have stated that around 6AM PST, they saw a huge tail fin emerge from the water, then pull the entire carcass beneath the waterline, only to emerge moments later. “I have lived on the coast for most of my life,” stated Roger McNarn. “I have never seen a shark's tail fin that large. It must have been the width of my fishing troller.”

The whale's remains washed up on shore an hour after the attack, which provided marine biologists with a startling discovery. “It appears that the latter third of the mammal was dissected with one bite,” stated Robert Culper, Marine Biologist from the Tartin Foundation. “We have also found a tooth embedded into the spine of the unfortunate beast.”

According to a preliminary report, the tooth's size, the bite radius and eyewitness accounts have biologists concerned that the shark involved was larger than a Great White. “We have determined that this shark was of monstrous proportions,” stated Culper. “We estimate that the shark was well over 100 feet long and had a bite radius of seven to eight feet.” According to Culper, the tooth they found had a slant height of over 7.5 inches.

The largest known shark to have ever existed was the Megalodon aka "Big Tooth." Believed to be an extinct species, fossil records indicate that it lived approximately 1.5 million years ago, during the Cenozoic Era. The largest fossilized Megalodon tooth in possession is just over 6.5 inches in length. Until now, scientists believed the Megalodon to have been the largest and most powerful predator to ever live, growing to 95 feet in length.

“I cannot say that the whale was attacked by a Megalodon,” stated Culper. “But whatever attacked and killed this beast should have paleontologists rather excited.”
