The shark’s head appeared to be chomped off by an even bigger creature, but what creature in our current time can still exist and be capable of such a thing?
The name of the fisherman that found the severed shark’s head went by the name of Trapman Bermagui, also known as Jason. He was trying to catch some smaller sharks off the coast of Sydney that day, but instead, he pulled up that decapitated shark’s head which weighed around 100kg.
Jason thought that he had seen it all, but at that moment he found a marlin bill that was embedded into the decapitated Mako shark’s head. The shark demonstrated amazing healing powers as the marlin bill had been wedged in the shark’s head for years.
He wrote a post on Facebook saying that the shark head was all they got back of the monster Mako and it was unfortunate that how they didn’t see what ate it but must have been impressive!
Could it have been a surviving megalodon that ripped off the Mako shark’s head? This may not seem possible as the megalodon is a gigantic prehistoric mega shark whose species was supposedly wiped out by cosmic radiation about 2.6 million years ago, but whatever creature that had this Mako shark for dinner must have been an absolute unit.
So, if it wasn’t the Megalodon, what could have consumed this Mako Shark? Let’s see, large adult Mako sharks can grow up to 4.5 meters in length and can weigh over 500kg whereas Great white sharks can grow to 6.4 meters and weigh between 680 and 1,800 kg. However, some of the larger great white sharks have been documented to weigh up to 2,270kg. So, if one of these larger great white sharks was really hungry or spoiling for a fight with the Mako shark, then this might explain why the Mako shark’s head was ripped off.
