WITH ADULT SHARKS REACHING LENGTHS OF CLOSE TO 65 FEET, AND MAXIMUM TOOTH SIZE OF 7 1/16 INCHES, THIS WAS BY FAR THE MOST DEADLIEST PREDATOR TO HAVE EVER ROAMED THE OCEANS. FORTUNATELY THESE SHARKS ARE LONG GONE AND BECAME EXCTINCT AROUND THE PLIOCENE EPOCH , ABOUT 2 MILLION YEARS AGO. THE FOSSILIZED REMAINS OF THE MEGALODON CAN BE FOUND WORLD WIDE.
