If it's the scientifically examined and presumed largest Meg from the past, 25 KWs are too much. there isn't an accurate way to record speed or maneuverability but judging from modern cetaceans the livyatan might have out maneuvered the megalodon. Dolphins, including large dolphins like killer whales and pilot whales that confusingly have the word "whale" in their English names, are highly intelligent. If it's the Meg from that picture, he eats all 25 in one bite. We have no complete fossils of either and can only make guesses. So intelligence is a minor factor. they are idiots. They'll realize NOT all of them will survive the fight, so a certain amount of them will accept death in order for the group to win. According to this system, fin, blue and minke whales intelligence is indicated to be higher than that of bottlenose dolphins(who are only considered extremely intelligent cause they were studied on more than other animals) and only surpassed by orcas, pilot whales, and of course humans. The eq system might even be worse than the system of brain size=intelligence. I don't think livyatan hunts sharks considering there are no known evidences of that but the megalodon is used to hunting whales and livyatan is one of them. They said megalodon because it had a stronger bite force and more robust body so If livytan rammed megalodon could endure the hit and I'm a smart biologist man so believe me so megalodon win 51 % of the time livyatan 49% of the time. However: as I said before, sharks lose speed compared to a smaller individual of similar morphology with increasing size and weight because it will spend more energy at the same speed as its reduced version because of the weight and the shark, in general, not being predators of endurance, the largest will be much slower even if their morphology allows them. But the primary food source for both was marine mammals. shark's under belly is its weakness. In terms of total sizing (which is a pretty good way to determine matchups in the natural world) you get 58,000 lbs vs 60,000 lbs, giving Megalodon a very slender advantage. However, if you're a sea creature, speed is the most important ability. I don't get why people say shark skin is thick. but much like modern cetaceans (whales, dolphins , and porpoises) its likely that the livyatan did not live a solitary life. shark, it can equip up to 3 pets at a time and can break purple crystal walls. I just absolutly love how everyone declares megalodon winner solely because of its bite force. People need to stop overestimating predators and realize that they need uncivilized and dishonorable tactics like stealth in order to kill a single deer. No matter how you spell it, leviathan is a word that describes this monster quite accurately. cetaceans are smart while working together and can flip over and paralyze a megalodon, or bite the megalodons vulnerable underbelly. cryptid (author) from USA on August 17, 2019: @PeteD - That is an extremely well-researched comment. Back when Megalodon was first discovered researchers put its estimated length at 80-100 feet, but in recent times there are more realistic numbers. Killer Wales are only 1/3 that. 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. How does this post have such an insane comment-to-views ratio??? the killer whales have hunted sperm whales, a sperm whale eats a megalodon as a snack. First let me explain how the eq system came to be. i could disagree any of the animals EASILY winning because both would have a difficult fight. It had the biggest teeth of any animal to ever live at over a foot long. This would leave the megalodon totally out of it's depth (pun intended) and it would be taken out quickly. So it seems Livyatan’s descandants are far more powerful and less likely to be preyed upon than megalodon’s descendants. @Nat you are mostly correct. Both the great white shark and the killer whale or orca are fearsome top predators. so the leviathan wins it has brain proper bones and hedbut skills. These were apex predators with equal strengths and some advantages and disadvantages for both animals. @samconery: That Megalodon in that picture easily destroys. Livyatan is related to the sperm whale which has the thickest skin of any animal alive today meaning it will be hard for megalodon to penetrate its blubber.
