Recently, Megalodon sightings have occurred off the coast of Brazil and other areas; could it be true?

Megalodons are a race of prehistoric shark, thought to be extinct. They are gigantic and deadly. Long sharks have been found in the water that are longer than a small boat.  

How big can a megalodon get? Megalodons can get to over 60 feet long. Their teeth are almost 13 inches. These sharks were the dreadnoughts of their time. They could eat over 300 pounds a day. Their jaws were large enough to swallow a human with one bite.

How did they go extinct? Simulations of the shark were made, and 99.9% of  all possible existences died out very long ago. But what happened to the last simulation?

When the breakthrough occurs, so will another article.
