I'm skeptical about that program. It seemed scripted and some of the photos they showed as evidence looked too CG to be considered credible. If you've heard anything or have any insight as to whether or not that was legit, I'd be curious to know.

It's extinct. It's all computer generated.

It has been a long time since I believed anything I saw on any cable channel that purported to show me History, Science, Discovery, or any other similar buzzword.

At lest, Animal Planet had the decency to sneak in a little disclaimer that the whole episode was fiction.

Sci-fi. Intended to be fun programming only.

Megalodons existed. They are extinct. Complete fossils are rare because sharks are cartilaginous, and cartilage doesn't tend to fossilize well. They were larger by every measure than whale sharks, which are our largest extant fish.

But pretty much everything else in that "documentary" is fiction.

I miss the days when AP had dry, scientific documentaries narrated by British men.
