Monster Quest is a fantastic series where they go in search for cryptid sort creatures, as the name suggests. They follow on reported sightings, footage, and scientific evidence. This certain episode focuses on ‘The Black Demon Shark’, a huge shark which has been seen by fishermen whilst they have been out to sea. The theory is that the Megladon isn’t actually extinct (and that’s what the Black Demon Shark is), like the Coelacanth, which was thought to be extinct thousands of years ago but was then rediscovered in 1938.
