the teeth of whales are built to pierce and hold, while those of sharks such as Meg pierces and slices. this is going to be a huge advantage to Meg

The livyatan is atually underrated. The whale has a much better brain than the shark. If the shark fails to kill it with its first bite(which I don't see happenning), Livyatan will figure out a plan to kill the shark. Plus, being a sperm whale it might also had the power to make huge sound and stun its victim/enemy like modern sperm whales do. So, if the megalodon doesn't have a big size advantage, I can't see it winning.

Expertise

I can answer most questions relating to real or hypothetical situations. I have a better understanding of animal behavior and specifically predatory behavior and interspecies predatory relationships. Mammals is my field of expertise but I can do my best in answering questions regarding other animals. Small mammals are my favourite matchups. One or two prehistoric match-ups is OK, but please do not focus on them as they are outside my expertise.

Experience

Even before completing my degree I considered myself an expert in mammal behavior. Doing my degree only furthered my interest and knowledge in the subject. After uni I got the opportunity to spend 6 months in South Africa and Kenya where I spent nearly every day basically observing and studying the animals of the savanna.

Education/Credentials
BSc Degree in Zoology from the Melbourne University, Australia.
