What is the likelihood that there are massive sea creatures dormant in the unexplored depths of our oceans, such as in the Mariana Trench?

I've always been fascinated by the concept of things like sea serpents, leviathans, and the like. Aquatic cryptozoology.
>>
>>2406205
besides squids, zero
>>
>>2406205
We've been to the bottom of the Mariana trench. Theres not much to see
>>
>>2406206
This, there's nothing to eat

Sadly, all of the supposed "giant sea monsters" that have been sighted over the centuries are likely to be nothing more than rather mundane submersible robots built by aliens
>>
>>2406210

We've only been to a few points in the trench. The trench is about 2,550 km long. We haven't explored it fully.

>>2406206

Why?
>>
>>2406216

Well, that's why I said 'dormant'. If it's in some kind of state of hibernation, it might be able to survive without eating, until something wakes it up.
>>
>>2406219
Godzilla doesn't exist. Just accept it.
>>
>>2406205

I share the same curiosity as you OP, but
>>2406216 kinda says what I've come to believe more over the years. (Limited food supply) that it'd be highly unlikely that something of such massive size could sustain living at those depths for extended periods of time. Also from most documentaries I've seen it seems the farther down you go, the organisms living down there become smaller and smaller with all of the pressure being at those depths.
>>
>>2406219
and what would it have eaten before going dormant?
and how did it get to that size?
and why have we never seen the small ones, they can't all be dormant?
>>
>>2406226

Interspecies cannibalism to the point of near extinction?
>>
>you will never know about all the ancient giant monsters that didn't leave decent fossils
>>
Its really unlikely that there's anything particularly different from animals we already know about.
There's definitely some weird squid or starfish no one has seen yet, but nothing like what most people fantasize about.
>>
>>2406217
>The trench is about 2,550 km long

Not really all that large of an area for something big.
>>
what about megalodon?

Was there a bunch of food back then? What were the oceans like?
>>
>>2407812
Again, too little food and too high pressure.
>>
>>2407812
>>2407812
Carcharocles megalodon lived in the relative
shallows praying on the large mammals of the surface water there not enough game in the deep to sustain such a large shark
>>2407823
For a large active shark yes much more food 3 times the amount of baleen whales we have today but all smaller only between 20-60feet long as well as numerous species of Sirenians sea turtles and tons of toothed whales

I wanna believe.

>>2407854

Whales can dive pretty deep, it was not until recently we discovered that giant squids feeding on spermwhales( I think?) exists.

Who knows what might have existed, no one is going to look for fossile at depth of 4000 meters.

It wont survive being nibbled by Krakens. Unless it is frozen in glacier-tier.

>>2408846

Did you draw that, Anon? Liek, oh emm gee, you're like, so talented!
>>
>>2406205
Zero, carnivores have a limit to how big they can get before their own size makes them more likely to starve to death then survive.
>>
>>2408897
This. Alligators have no theoretical limit to their size, but they usually starve to death when they become too massive to sustain themselves.

is that true? if I become a millionaire with an infinite supply of canned tuna can I create a deinosuchus in my back yard?

You have it backwards
>>2408075
Scars from the squid fighting before the based sperm whale devoured it.
>>
>>2409066
yeah man reptiles dont have growth plates

>>2409066
A deinosuchus might be a bit much but you can get a new Gustave https://youtu.be/q5cnvkHYqLg

There are creatures like that, but not remotely what you're thinking of.
>>

>>2409068
Is that the tall dude from 3oh3?
>>
I can't believe the blue whale, the largest animal to EVER exist, is still around and people are still not satisfied. Do people don't think they're cool enough because they're filter feeders?
>>
>>2410305
It's only human to want ridiculous myths. Even when we didn't have the tech to make us all that safe from things like bears and lions we were still making up monster stories because the real monsters weren't scary enough.
>>
>>2410305

Blue whales are cool, but not REALLY cool like hypothetical sea monsters because all they really do is float around and get fat.
>>
>>2407812
Would a fully grown Megalodon even bother eating a human? Or are we too small.
