Megalodons were a type of shark that existed between 23 and 2.6 million years ago. They were the largest known prehistoric sharks, reaching up to 20 meters in length and weighing up to 60 tons!
Megalodons were first discovered by Europeans in 1828, when a fossilized tooth was found near Charleston, South Carolina. Since then, thousands of fossils have been found all over the world—including in North and South America, Europe, Africa and Australia.
They lived during the Mesozoic Era when dinosaurs roamed the earth. The name “megalodon” means “big tooth” (mega- meaning “big”, -odon meaning “tooth”). Megalodons had large teeth with serrated edges that could grow up to 7 inches long!
Could there be Megalodons today? Unlikely! The last known member of this species died out around 2 million years ago due to climate change and rising sea levels caused by melting ice caps during the end of the Ice Age (the last Ice Age).
