CARCHARADON MEGALODON. (m)
This species is better known as Carcharadon megalodon and was once believed to be related
to the Great White Shark. Its genus placement is still debated and some say it is Otodus megalodon.
This distant cousin to the Mako Shark is thought to have been
approx 20 metres long, weighed eight times more than the great white and hunted whales
when it cruised the oceans 3 to 15 million years ago.
