Megalodon

Information

Megalodon lived globally in the warm oceans of the Miocene and Pliocene period. Fossils of Megalodon have been found on every continent except Antarctica. The Megalodon lived during the Miocene and Pliocene time period, which is approxmiately 16 to 2.6 million years ago.

Its estimated that they could grow up to around 60 feet. The average size was about 33 feet.

The diet of the Megalodon was pretty much anything but there is evidence that it mostly fed on whales.

Causes of Extiction

It is still unclear on what caused the extinction of the Megalodon. It is though that it was unable to adapt to changing ocean conditions.
