What Did The Megalodon Shark Eat?

Whatever it wanted...

As the joke would go, it was a 60 foot shark, it could eat whatever it wanted. But, what does the fossil record show that the Megalodon really ate? Fossil evidence shows that the Megalodon primarily fed on large marine mammals including whales, dolphins, sea lions, dugongs (sea cows), as well as sea turtles and large fish. Younger Megalodon sharks probably concentrated on smaller prey, while a 60 foot adult...

Could The Megalodon Be Alive In The Deep Ocean?

Megalodon from the deep.

Many book and movie plots have suggested that the giant Megalodon shark could still be alive in the deep oceans (such as the Marianas Trench). The argument goes that most of the deep ocean lies unexplored, so who knows what could be down there, maybe there is a Megalodon. But, how much scientific reality is there to this argument. One claim is made that we had never caught or filmed...

Count the Megalodon still be lurking in the deep ocean? Science says, No

If Megalodon sharks were still alive today, they would be a breathtaking sight. They were the largest sharks ever — up to three times longer and thirty times heavier than today’s great white sharks. Or as a shark scientist quoted by National Geographic put it, “A great white is about the size of the clasper, or penis, of a male Megalodon.” Their teeth averaged 3 to 5 inches — and were sometimes more than 7 inches long....

Just how big was the Megalodon Shark

Megalodon size compared with a Whale Shark, modern Great White Shark and human.

The Megalodon was the largest known predator in the history of the Earth, at least based on its weight. The sperm whale is a little bit longer, but also lighter.  Over the years the size estimations of the Megalodon shark have changed, as the science surrounding it’s evolution has progressed.  One of the issues in estimating it’s true size is that the skeletons of sharks are made out of cartilage...

Megalodon Myth: The Megalodon And Great White Shark Are Closely Related

Carcharodon hubbelli
Well preserved fossil of Carcharodon hubbelli which is thought to represent a transitional species between the Broad-Toothed Mako and Great White Shark.

The Great White Shark being a descendant of or closely related to the Megalodon might be the most commonly repeated misconception about the prehistoric shark. Even more so than that the Megalodon may still be alive (thanks Discover Channel). While it was once believed to be true many decades ago, this view is currently not held among scientists based on the fossil evidence. When the Megalodon was first scientifically described back in...
