Researchers Search for ‘Mystery Sea Monster’ That Devoured Great White Shark

Quote:
Scientists are baffled by what exactly it was that consumed a 9-foot great white

Shark attacks suddenly seem less scary.

When a 9 ft. long great white shark’s tracker washed up on a beach, scientists found that the data indicated that the shark underwent a 30-degree spike and a rapid 1,900 ft. dive. The temperature increase and underwater descent indicate that the shark had entered a larger animal’s digestive track.

A 9 foot Great White is a baby. Having said that, it's a BIG baby and it would take something pretty darn big to eat it.

What would pull it down to those depths? I don't believe that's a large shark tactic.

I believe Killer Whales have been known to attack Great Whites when they shared the same hunting grounds, but I don't think Great White is on the Killer Whale feeding menu.

Hmm....Dives Deep with prey....can eat a 9 foot Great White. Umm...A confused Sperm Whale?

I just dont' know. If I had to guess, I suppose it would be Killer Whale. A very hungry one.

It couldn't have been a bigger shark. It had to be warm blooded, like a whale, whatever it was.

I know a large mouth bass can eat half it's body size. I would suppose a killer whale could easily eat a 9' shark if it's full grown.

I'd guess whale or giant or collosal squid, but who knows when it comes to the ocean.

It's aliens man, they are living under the oceans and eat Shark.

May have been a Merman.

I also thought of Giant Squid because of the rapid decent not sure if a Killer Whale would do that or not.

Or, it just might be a marketing stunt to get people to watch the show...

I actually thought aliens, too. Made me think of an article about the undersea alien flying saucer bases in the Bermuda triangle. I read about them in an old "Argosy" magazine when I was 11. Somebody left the magazine at our fishing cottage, like 1970 or so......they knew where bigfoot was, too. Pretty cool.

Interestingly enough... "Megladon, the monster shark lives" is on Discovery Channel right now.

I am pretty confident that there are at least one species in the deepest darkest recesses of the ocean that haven't been discovered. Probably prehistoric in nature. Numbers are so few that they don't attract attention.

The problem with that, as with the Loch Ness monster, is that there has to be enough of the species to breed, unless of course they're immortal.

They find land animals no one knew existed. Heck, I still remember three decades later they were still finding Japanese soldiers that had been hiding out, even still fighting. Ocean is bigger. I can believe there are reproducing populations of big-nasties down there, yet to be seen. Fun to think about anyhow.

In the recent past new species are emerging from the depths of the ocean and species we thought went extinct. Some scientist say the recent earthquakes on the ocean floor shifted things around. Others are claiming global warming causing oceans to warm and putting species on the move. We know very little about our oceans.

People paying millions and millions to be space tourists. I think if I had that kind of spare cash, I'd be going the other way. Nice view in near-space but not many mysteries like you're describing.

Agreed. Although hunting for unique things in the deep ocean would have to be very tedious. I'd rather have a look after someone else takes the time to find "it".

There was no better show on TV when I was 10 than the Undersea World of Jaques Cousteau. All the worst sunburns I've ever had came from 6 hrs or so just disappearing while I was snorkeling.
