  • Don't be fooled by these gentle waves.

  • These still waters hide

  • a 20 million year death match

  • between two prehistoric monsters.

  • Grab some popcorn and a snorkel.

  • You have a front-row seat for

  • the ultimate aquatic showdown

  • between the megalodon shark

  • and the Leviathan whale.

  • Twenty million years ago,

  • these creatures dominated the oceans,

  • and they may have fought before that.

  • Although they're long gone,

  • you can still see the remains

  • of these giants in their descendants.

  • Just look at the sperm whale,

  • which descended from its toothed ancestor.

  • Even this monster doesn't

  • compare in size to the Leviathan.

  • And while you might think that

  • the great white descended

  • from the megalodon,

  • it's closer to the blue shark.

  • See that snubbed nose and flat jaw?

  • But if we could see these two giants

  • face off now, who would win?

  • Enjoying this fight?

  • Step into the ring and subscribe to our new channel VS.

  • Who would win in a fight?

  • A mongoose or cobra?

  • Liquid nitrogen or lava?

  • A saber-toothed tiger or a massive woolly mammoth?

  • Well break down each fight and see who takes the crown.

  • Click on the link below to find out.

  • Before we get to the main event,

  • let's run down the stats on these fighters.

  • The Leviathan whale grew

  • to almost 18.5 m (61 ft)

  • in length in its heyday.

  • While today's sperm whale

  • relies on suction to lure its prey,

  • this monster had teeth

  • the size of bowling pins

  • to rip its meals apart.

  • Its massive mouth

  • had the largest tetrapod bite recorded,

  • and it fed on other whales.

  • But these teeth

  • were not this killer's only weapon.

  • Some scientists theorize that

  • the sperm whale uses its unique organ,

  • the spermaceti, to control its buoyancy

  • during deep dives.

  • The waxy substance inside hardens

  • and lets the whale

  • sink into the water easier

  • by filling this body part with cold water.

  • But since the Leviathan

  • didn't hunt deep-sea creatures,

  • researchers think that

  • this organ could have been used

  • as a battering ram

  • to hammer prey into submission.

  • Scientists also wonder if this organ

  • could have increased

  • the whale's echolocation ability.

  • That means a Leviathan

  • could have stunned its target

  • with a sonic blast.

  • But how would the megalodon

  • handle this powerhouse?

  • Well, don't count out this predator yet.

  • Tests have dated

  • megalodon shark fossils back

  • two and a half million years.

  • And the largest bones

  • found were almost 18 m (59 ft) long,

  • making this

  • the largest fish to ever to roam the seas.

  • This shark had one

  • of the most powerful bite forces

  • of any predator on Earth.

  • And with 276 serrated teeth

  • that measured almost 18 cm (7 in) long,

  • this terror has earned

  • its fearsome reputation.

  • Like the Leviathans,

  • megalodons fed on large whales,

  • sharks and dolphins.

  • These gigantic creatures

  • were so fierce that some theories state

  • their babies would devour each other alive

  • while still developing in their mothers.

  • But you didn't come here

  • for Baby Shark.

  • Let's get to the main event.

  • Weighing in at almost 60 tons,

  • the megalodon

  • would outweigh the Leviathan.

  • The shark might have seen the whale first

  • while on patrol,

  • giving it ample opportunity to attack first.

  • While the whale comes in

  • at only 45 tons,

  • this killing machine

  • is much more intelligent than its opponent

  • and could try different tactics.

  • If the Leviathan had used

  • its agile swimming maneuvers

  • to get at just the right angle,

  • its sonic boom could stun the megalodon.

  • Then the whale could ram

  • the massive shark with its head.

  • But this warm-blooded mammal

  • couldn't stay underwater forever.

  • It had to come up for air.

  • That could give the megalodon

  • the opportunity to chase its deadly prey.

  • Speeding along at 17 m (55 ft) per second,

  • this ancient shark

  • could have cut through the water fast

  • and landed a bite on the Leviathan's fin,

  • making the whale all but helpless.

  • If the meg caught ahold of the fin,

  • it could tear through the whale

  • like a steel trap.

  • Remember, this predator

  • relied only on instinct and sheer power.

  • And unlike the Leviathan,

  • it did not back down.

  • But if the whale managed to bite

  • the shark's soft underbelly,

  • it could have a chance

  • of tearing apart its spine.

  • With a bite superior to the megalodon's,

  • a few strategic whale chomps

  • would end this fight once and for all.

  • While most people online give this fight

  • to the megalodon shark,

  • the Leviathan whale has the speed

  • and wits to come out on top.

  • What about you?

  • Who do you think would win this battle?

  • Let us know in the comments.

  • Now, this fight was the warm-up.

  • Next up, we have

  • the Gigantosaurus versus the Troodon.

  • Get to your corners because

  • that's a story for another WHAT IF.

Don't be fooled by these gentle waves.
