Expedition Unknown: Megalodon
8 p.m., 3 a.m. on DSC Shark Week 2019 officially gets under way with this new documentary that looks way, way back to the 60-ton shark-like creature that was five times as large as a Tyrannosaurus rex and ruled the world’s oceans as apex predator for nearly 20 million years before inexplicably disappearing. Where did this behemoth go? Paleontologists use fossilized teeth from one of these creatures to take a bite out of this baffling mystery, and also search for clues among its contemporary descendants. Josh Gates and Alison Towner dive into shark infested waters to further investigate.
