Granted livyatan is smarter than the megalodon but they have the same size and strenght and the megalodon is faster and more agile. Also megalodon is not alive people. However, if you're a sea creature, speed is the most important ability. In 2008, a joint research … This is a relatively new species, and as research continues surprises may be revealed. The meg wins due to strength,bite force and all around the meg is the real king of the ocean, BUT that doesn't mean the livyatan isnt strong it is still able to kill a meg but I think most of the time the meg wins although I think the meg is king, maybe the livyatan has something that we havent discovered that could kill the megalodon...Who knows? However, other fish (and even non-predatorysharks) may have grown larger than it. The name Megalodon … meg too so it is basically orca vs great white duh who wins? If these apex predators came together to fight, bite force won't be very useful, however, the megalodon has a speed that is much higher than the leviathan, and the leviathan has an intellect a megalodon never had. plus the megalodon had hard skin and it would have been hard for a Livyatan to penetrate it. Megalodon would just win easily with the livyatan because megalodon have the strongest bite force and it was bigger than livyatan, Well it is hard to claim who is the winner. leviathan would be too hard for meg to win and colossal squids which grow up to 22 meters or sperm whales up to 19 meters or liopleurodon which can grow up to 26 meters all beat meg (meg grows up to 18 meters). :) ^-^ and meg is not smart so yeah. They are also very adaptive at learning and developing new hunting strategies when dealing with different types of prey. leviathan will bite megs gills and meg is now a meatloaf. cryptid (author) from USA on June 18, 2020: @Livyatan will win - That is one of the most well-thought-out responses I've ever had on one of my articles. Once they became bigger, faster and able to go to colder climates megalodon and Livyatan went extinct so in the evolutionary battle the true winner are modern whales who won just by moving to the Artic. Blubber=armor. Megalodon young would have lived in shark nurseries closer to the shore where they’d be safer, and adults would have hunted in deeper water. Although contested by mainstream science, there are some cryptozoologists who believe the Megalodon shark could still be alive today, perhaps in the deeper parts of the ocean. So what would have been the purpose of this organ? Its superior bite force, speed and strength was what gave it the edge in its dangerous ocean world against all kinds of other apex predators, including large and dangerous whales. It could easily attack the largest marine mammals of its day, such as whales. Some animals, such as elephants, have longer tusks, but Livyatan’s teeth were built for action. Finback whales are said to be known as the greyhound of the sea because of their speed. A great whites is 2 inches but the meg is bigger. Researchers believe the shifting ocean conditions may have played a part in the extinction of these massive predators, either influencing the creatures directly or altering their food supply. Like today’s largest sharks, megalodon also faced competition from a giant whale that hunted the same prey. so its 50/50. According to the encephalization quotient(eq) system for determining intelligence, whales dumb dolphins smart. So, depending on the circumstances, it’s easy to see each of these monsters getting the better of the other. Especially with presumably superior manueveribilty, the whale may have evaded the shark's straight-ahead speed with a sneaky nudge to turn its adversary over and paralyze it. The answer simply may be that large predators have a more difficult time adapting to changing conditions, particularly where their food sources are involved. But, the megalodon's bite force is the strongest ever. However, many other whales are only averagely intelligent for mammals and not much more intelligent than great whites. Essentially a 10 million year old sperm whale that lived in the same seas as the shark. Why would it hide in trenches? about the same as modern male sperm whales and, I assume, male Livyatans. Close to the waves, even a massive adult whale would have been easy prey for the stealthy shark. 1. Livyatan, which you and I believe to be more powerful than the megalodon, has not been confirmed to have hunted any of the greater whale species and would usually consume whales about as long as 25 ft. So, they changed the name to the Hebrew spelling. Livyatan would win.The Meg was 40-60 ft, Livyatan was 40-60 ft so they were the same size. but if meg bites first, it will kill livyatan. Megalodon really only knew 3 words. No matter how you spell it, leviathan is a word that describes this monster quite accurately. If a solitary megalodon came up against a pod of these whales, then the intelligence of the levyatan would mean that it would win. Livyatan was a sperm whale, not an orca. For comparison, the fastest sharks today travel at 60 mph which is but not significantly. It’s interesting to imagine these two incredible prehistoric sea creatures squaring off in an epic battle, and if we were around back then we may have seen it. "Livyatan will go to the surface for air.". In addition to fighting in groups the cranium of the squalodon appears to show evidence of prehistoric echolocation which may have helped these marine mammals identify incoming predators as well as coordinate attacks and defensive measures with other squalodons in their pod. "10T": man, realize that the bite of the livyathan has never been studied, as well as the sperm whale which is potentially estimated as the most powerful bite currently. They were filter feeders, ill-equipped to defend themselves, and easy prey. Humpback whales have shown empathy for other species and actually save other animals from orcas. There is some debate over whether it is closely related to the Great White, or whether it was the last in a lineage of giant toothed sharks. But, if we think of real life, not just them being put in an underwater ring, then the whale would win. assuming all conditions were same with o one having the upper hand and both spotted each other at the same time i think the livyatan would win. it is bigger stronger and has a quicker speed. Yes, if they had the teeth of Livyatan, then they probably would, but only because they're much bigger than great whites. Megalodon uses its teeth which are sharp like a sword(i know swords are better in most situations but only cause it’s fast to parry but a shark can’t parry a whales blowing I’m only comparing the offensive capabilities because you can’t block with teeth or tails). Like modern sperm whales, Livyatan appears to have had an organ with stored reservoirs of wax and oil at the base of its skull. i have been studying about prehistoric marine life for years and i know who would LIKELY win the battle, This is funny how they only found a tooth for the shark and assumed it was bigger,there's no shark in history that can be proving to be bigger then any sperm whale,todays sharks won't even attempt to hunt a mordern day sperm whale,what think back then a shark would,the shark is not even top predator today,it's the killer whale,lavyatan was bigger smarter then a megalodon,which they only found teeth of the shark they calling the king of the prehistoric ocean,bull shit,y'all give that shark to much false story's,if it was the top predator back then,how come it's not now,and then they down play the whales size and length,lavyatan was bigger and longer then the mordern day sperm whale,not just alil bigger,cause if that was the case,lavyatan would still be here,how you only find Meg's teeth and find lavyatan skull and teeth and then say some bull shit like, the shark was this big and that long and it was top predator,you would think they would know more about the lavyatan then the shark, lavyatan wins hands down all the way,it's common sense people. a whale tail's kick can kill 3 elephants at once ( very strong ) , a power like this can damege hard to the megalodon . Although if the Livyatan could get a bite on the gills of the shark it will be hard for it to though, due to the fact the Megalodn's speed would counter that attack really easily. When attacked by a megalodon shark the squalodon is believed to have gathered together to defend themselves and attack the megalodon in order to injure and weaken it. Whales are smarter because they can communicate and socialize better than sharks but not because they can "hunt better" and the same goes for dolphins. Megalodon,it had a stronger bite than the livyatan.Plus,it was faster and more agile than the livyatan,but the livyatan was smarter than the megalodon and can use it to its advantage.Anyways,this battle reminds me of a giant octopus(livyatan) fighting against a sperm whale(megalodon)(the outcome,not the animals themselves.Man,just picture a livyatan with 8 arms...). I have some more evidence for Livyatan and I wanted to clarify a few things. cetaceans are smart while working together and can flip over and paralyze a megalodon, or bite the megalodons vulnerable underbelly. livyatans are likely relatives to an orca or a sperm whale. As a whale, it probably had echolocation too. According to its fossil remains, megalodon can be at least 59 feet in length and perhaps as long as 79 feet. A. Burnham Shute [Public domain], via Wikimedia Commons. But the primary food source for both was marine mammals. Either way, thanks to these two monsters the prehistoric ocean was a very dangerous place. The majority of baleen whales in certain areas have endured several bites from orcas, who have 4 inch long teeth. But lets say they collided head on. but leviathan had a 2x bigger teeth so leviathan wins. meg can't just cut leviathan in half it depends on teeth. Both Blue Whales and Whale Sharks are the largest in their species and they are both great swimmers, ocean dwellers, fish and crustacean eaters, fear-evokers, and simply awe-inspiring. The megalodon shark is a massive oceanic animal that existed at least 28 million years ago until it became extinct around 1.5 million years ago. But Livyatan May have won. Bernardbuddicom78. it will probably bite off megs gills and meg wil be a dead fish... leviathan has 2 times bigger teeth and its smarter. Some humpback whales do not do this so it isn’t instinctual. I think its kind of like the collossal squid vs sperm whale kinda thing. Meg's bite force is almost equal to the weight of leviathan. They're close in size, but female Livyatans probably lived in pods like modern female sperm whales, so the male Megalodon would have no chance. so it really is 50/50. Also megalodon had exposed body parts like the gills. Megalodon or Livyatan? but leviathan is smarter. Livyatan had intelligence (which doesn't matter if the shark ambushes it). Megalodon has 180kn bite force. so the leviathan wins it has brain proper bones and hedbut skills. they have the same size and weight so its basically orca vs great white so whale wins.
