Megalodon (Otodus megalodon), meaning "big tooth", is an extinct species of mackerel shark that lived approximately 23 to 3.6 million years ago (Mya), during the Early Miocene to the Pliocene. It was formerly thought to be a member of the family Lamnidae and a close relative of the great white shark. Megalodon is the largest shark to of ever lived, reaching lengths of up to 60-70 feet and an estimated maximum weight of over 60 tons. To compare this size, the largest modern Great White sharks max out around 23 feet and 3 ½ tons. This makes the Megalodon nearly 3 times as long, and 20 times and heavy as the Great White Shark.This item is in the category "Collectables\Rocks, Fossils & Minerals\Fossils\Shark Teeth".
