Megalodon is an extinct species of shark that lived approximately 25 - 1.5 million years ago. Fossil remains indicate that these powerful predators reached up to 52 feet in length. Their serrated teeth were not just good cutting tools, they were also well suited for grasping powerful prey and would seldom crack even when slicing through bones.
