Check out the BIGGEST Prehistoric Enemies Of The MEGALODON! From gigantic sea monsters to other prehistoric creatures like sharks and whales, this top 10 list of biggest animals that could take on the megalodon is amazing!

Cetotherium Whales and sharks honestly don't get along, mainly because one is passive more times than not, and sharks are usually aggressive hunters. But in the past, whales were very different than those we have today. The closest thing would be the orca, but they aren't even whales. Back in the days of the megalodon, there were many large whales with gigantic teeth and no fear. One of these rivals was probably the Cetotherium. 7. Zygophyseter Varolai Try saying that five times fast. While the Zygophyseter Varolai may be a mouthful to say, it does have a more simplistic nickname...the "Killer Sperm Whale", and one look at its teeth will show you why that name is pretty accurate. Just as fascinating is that we didn’t even know the Zygophyseter Varolai existed until 2005! That year, paleontologists and geologists came across an almost complete skeleton in southern Italy. 6. Aulophyseter You rarely hear the word "predatory whale" in modern times, since we usually think of whales as peaceful creatures. But sometimes people use the term to describe sperm whales or orcas, or during the Miocene period, the Aulophyseter. This was a whale that prided itself on its predatory ability. This extinct genus of sperm whale weighed around 1,100 kg (2400 lb) and had measured about 6.5 meters long. It was related to other predatory whales that existed at the time such as Acrophyseter and the Livyatan. 5. Brygmophyseter Shigensis Also known as the “biting sperm whale”, it is the case of another whale only known to exist because of a nearly complete skeleton that was found. While some pieces were missing, it was enough to prove that Brygmophyseter Shigensis was a real thing, and the only species to exist under the Brygmophyseter genus. For now, you know, these things are always changing!! 4. Rhamphosuchus In the modern world, crocodiles have been documented to be pretty long, with many getting over 20 feet (6m) in length. But in the prehistoric world, there was a crocodile species that got much bigger than that!!! The Rhamphosuchus. To be clear, the fossil record for the Rhamphosuchus is more incomplete than you might think. In fact, there's no complete fossil for the creature, and most of what we know has been recreated from incomplete skulls and teeth. 3. Leviathan Melvillei There are many legends in the ocean, and one of the most prominent ones is a creature called the Leviathan, a giant biblical sea monster. But guess what? This technically wasn't a legend, because fossil hunters in Europe came across one of the biggest predators that ever lived. Scientists decided to call the creature Leviathan Melvillei- melvillei in honor of Herman Melville, the author of Moby Dick. 2. Megalodon Surprised? You wouldn't be if you knew one of the darker secrets about shark life...many shark species are cannibals. Or, they have the ability to eat their fellow shark should they be in a pinch. Which is actually one reason why the Megalodon's were cannibals, they needed a lot of food. 1. Did it really even have enemies? It's important to ask this question because to some scientists and researchers, the idea of the Megalodon shark having any enemies at all is kind of ridiculous. After all, this was a shark that was between 60-90 feet long, had the bite strength of a T-Rex, and could rip just about anything in the water to shreds. So, could such a beast even have a threat under the water?

So only 1 incomplete skeleton was found of #5. Yet this so called "documentary" asserts that this species travelled in pods. Can't stand idiots who make shit up to make themselves sound intelligent. If only 1 (and then only a partial one), you can't assert that it travels in pods! You don't have enough data to prove that!

Technically the Megalodon was the largest shark (fish) to ever rule the Earth at around 60 tons. What it was not however was the largest predator. A title which is believed to be claimed by the Livyathan, one of the competing predators with the start of the ice age weighing in at around d 63 tons. Another difference between these two apex predators is the fact that the Livyathan was a whale. Classifying it as a mammal and not a fish like the Megalodon. I agree that whales and sharks dont get along, perhaps its genetic. Because the Megalodon also favored whale as a meal. Many changes happened during the ice age, inviting much debate on the Megalodon's extinction.

I dont believe we have any evidence that megalodon and mososaurus were alive at the same time, megalodon first appears in the fossil record about 23 million years ago and mososaurus seems to have died out about 65 million years ago. Thats about 40 million years difference.

I love how scientist try to make up s*** how they got people so brainwashed none of it is FACT or they don't have any scientific explanation or evidence just to support their LIES a few fossils and they run with it . most of this crap is based on scientists theories of what these creatures may of looked like or have been , again it's based on their imagination and lies , All LIES !

This video was disappointing i thought it was gonna mention some deep sea creatures that were MASSIVE because if we have deep sea gigantism for underwater life today and animals were just in general much larger than modern animals then just think about what kind of monsters lived back then but like they said at the end the ocean fllor is always moving so its more likely we won't ever know about these beasts because we can't find evidence to their existence but still label the title different then if ur not even sure that there was predators for the Meg.
Stephen Gardiner (6 months ago)
Perhaps you should use "predators" instead of "enemies" as there were bacteria, viruses and parasites that could be counted among this thing's enemies! There is also the slight problem of time frame here as some of these creatures did not exist at the same time.

The Megalodon did indeed have enemies. Prehistoric Sperm Whales and smaller raptorial whales would’ve been major competition, as Lyviathan was around the same size, and smaller raptorial whales hunted in packs. Not to mention that great whites also lived alongside Megalodons. Along with Rhamphosuchus. I have a theory that is the Mosasaurus didn’t go extinct, then, as it was the natural predator of sharks, it would’ve been the ultimate threat to Megalodon.

Colin Travers (6 months ago)
First of all there is so much wrong with the number 1 answer Yes it did have enemies and the main one was the leviathan The T. rex has a bright force of around 12,000 psi which isn’t that much compared to the leviathans 25,000 or the megalodons 30,000 psi bight force
Bright force 😂

what if leviathans bit the tail of a megalodon and turned it upside down to paralyze it, just like todays killerwhales do to great whites?

There is the possibility of Krakens. Most squid and octopi didn't have much of a skeleton to leave behind. The only evidence found were the fossilized vertebrae of icthyosaurs arranged the way modern octopi arrange fish vertebrae. The Kraken would likely be 100' or so to the job.
Feynman Was A Genius (6 months ago)
Maybe but they do have beaks which fossilize so if they were there we would maybe find some of those. Of course fossils happen rarely and are hard to find so we can never know for sure unless we do find one.

The Megalodon would probably take everything on without trying too hard.
Pyrozeus (6 months ago)
Colin Travers based on the megalodons abilities compared to the livyatan, yes. it is proven that megalodon didnt really have any enemies. but the closest to enemy you will ever get is, well, obviously, livyatan. these are educated assumptions based on megalodon’s closest relatives and teeth.
Colin Travers (6 months ago)
Pyrozeus thats has never been proven it’s been estimated and assumed
Colin Travers (6 months ago)
Pyrozeus I’ve read otherwise
Pyrozeus (6 months ago)
Colin Travers megalodon biteforce ranged 35,000 psi to 40,000 psi. livyatan, probably 25,000 psi to 30,000 psi.
Pyrozeus (6 months ago)
Miliano Carlo it was proven that the only enemy megalodon faced were other megalodons. megalodons ate whales including livyatans.

Mossasaurs were not dinosaurs, they were marine reptiles, distantly related to but not the same as dinosaurs.
