What was a Megalodon ?
The megalodon was perhaps the most frightening predator of all time. And it may also have been the greatest. This giant was a close cousin of the present-day white shark. But its only dorsal fin was as long as the body of the latter. The megalodon terrorised the oceans for more than 20 million years. It hunted whales, dolphins and seals. It was quick to grab them or tear them to pieces between its enormous jaws. An adult megalodon weighed twenty times more than the great white shark, the largest shark alive today.
