Megalodon Tooth Fossil in Collector's Box
The megalodon was the biggest predatory shark to ever live. Reaching lengths of 70 feet or more, these monstrous sharks ruled the oceans for more than 10 million years. They were so large they fed on whales. Some believe the megalodon could still live in the depths of the oceans, but most scientists agree this behemoth went extinct about a million years ago. Why it happened is a mystery, but some possible explanations are climate change, changes in its primary food source, and competition for food from rivals such as killer whales and the modern great white shark.
