Megalodon Display

If you think today’s sharks are scary, be glad you weren’t around 2.5 million to 15 million years ago, when a behemoth named Carcharodon megalodon ruled the seas.

Known only from fossilized teeth and vertebrae, Megalodon was approximately the size of a city bus. One look at the replica Megalodon jaws displayed at Long Island Aquarium 
and you’ll understand that hard as it might be to believe, Megalodon could literally swallow a Great White Shark (Carcharodon carcharias)!
