The Megalodon was a giant shark that lived as far back as 18 million years ago and became extinct about 1.5 million years ago. Through fossil records, this enormous predator could grow to a size of 60 feet. By comparison, the closely-related great white shark has a maximum size of about 20 feet.

I’d be even more terrified of the ocean if these guys were still chomping around, but fortunately for us, the Megalodon is Megalo-gone.

Here’s a vid (real, fake, i dunno, no scientific evidence they exist)…Check out that jaw at the beginning, though.
