About Carcharocles megalodon:
The Living Fish:
Pronounced (car-char-o-clees……meg-a-la-don), this animal was simply among the largest predators ever to live. Nothing on land, no terrestrial skeletal structure could have held the reported 220,000 lbs. this fish weighed. In the seas, the water supported the beast making its effective weight 0 lbs. and enabled it to grow over an estimated 70 feet long. Some reconstructed jaws of megalodon measure 10ft. by 11ft. This is larger than a garage door … you could have driven your pickup and camper into its mouth. For comparison, the great white shark in the movie “Jaws” was 22 ft. in length. Some scientists believe megalodon ate over 1.25 tons of food each day, about the weight of a present day, adult, female Great White Shark. T. rex would only have been a light snack.
