Sharks | Megalodon | Otodus
New Scientist magazine established Megalodon was an ancient whale killer, dating back to the Oligocene and Pliocene epoch, 28,000,000 to 2,600,000 years ago. A run of 25,400,000 years before unravelling their lineage it kept for millions of years. Stats: 50 tonnes, 60 foot long, 10-foot jaw - king of the ocean.
Palaeontologists theorise the Otodus ancestry connects to the great Megalodon from the Miocene era evolving up to 40,000,000 years and only now in their void, we witness one of many spectacular modern sharks, the Great White, a lineage of Carcharocles as we know it today.
