Megalodon

The world's most ferocious underwater devastator.

General Information

Scientific Name: Carcharocles Megalodon

This shark was in a world of it's own, it could crush a whale's head like a grape and it is 52 - 67ft long.

To me this is one of the most interesting aspects of the Great White shark.

The Great White's prehistoric great granddaddy, is a giant prehistoric shark of the genus Carcharodon Megalodon.

This ancient shark probably lived between about 16 to 1.6 million years ago.

As far is known, it was the largest predatory fish to have ever lived.

But recent studies have stated the shark may have gone extinct only 10,000 years ago.

And who knows, maybe there is still one out there... maybe.

It seems to me inconceivable that man can easily build ships able to go into space yet we still have not been to all of the deepest abysses of our own oceans.

Thanks for watching.
