Mysterious Creature: MEGALODON
April 27, 2009 Leave a comment
The megalodon meaning “big tooth” , was a giant shark that lived in prehistoric times, between 18million to 1.5million years ago and was the crew predator of its time. It is the largest carnivorous fish known to have existed and quite possibly the largest shark to have ever lived. This species is a member of the lamnidal family but its classification is in dispute and new genus has been proposed . Fossil evidence has revealed that megalodon fed upon large animals, including early whales. Some cryptozoologist argue that this shark might still alive today, probably living in deep waters, and often cite the examples of Coelacanth and megamouth shark to support this claims. However, such beliefs have earned no credibility in scientific stream except some other creatures like Loch Ness monster.
