Megalodon Teeth

Megalodon, meaning “big tooth”, is an extinct species of shark that lived approximately 23 to 2.6 million years ago, during the Early Miocene to the end of the Pliocene. It was formerly thought to belong to the family Lamnidae, making it closely related to the great white shark.  As one of the largest predators to have ever lived, megalodon captures people’s imagination — and for good reason. But was this apex predator simply a beefed-up great white shark, and is it still lurking in the dark depths of the ocean?
