Megalodon ("big tooth") is an extinct species of gigantic shark that lived roughly from 28 to 1.5 million years ago, during the Cenozoic Era (late Oligocene to early Pleistocene).

In the fifth episode of Jurassic Fight Club, a megalodon makes an appearance, where it is pitted against a Brygmophyseter in the prehistoric oceans of Japan.

DescriptionEdit

Megalodon's average size is 52 feet long, but some Megalodons grow up to be even 80 feet long, and tipping the scales from 50 tons to 103 tons. The Megalodon, a shark, was probably two to three times larger than today's great white shark. Its name means "long tooth," and its teeth were not only long but huge all around, with serrated edges.

Fighting styleEdit

The Megalodon had an extremely sharp sense of smell and good eyesight; it was also very agile, which made it a lethal predator. After stalking and catching up to its victim, the Megalodon would use its rows of massive teeth to rip into its flesh. The shark would then retreat and allow its prey to lose blood, returning to attack again when the victim had become weaker.

DietEdit

The Megalodon was an apex predator, at the top of the food chain in its waters. Its prey probably ranged from victims as small as seals (100 pounds each) to huge animals, including giant squid, other large sharks and, especially, whales.

TriviaEdit

  • Sharks don't have bones, which makes it hard for paleontologists to estimate the Megalodon's size and shape. They did have some bony cartilage that fossilized, but most existing information about them comes from their teeth, which were replaceable. In guessing the size of the Megalodon, scientists estimate 10 feet for every inch of tooth.
  • Megalodon is the biggest Predator in the entire Series with Brygmophyseter being the second. T-rex is the largest land predator in the series though.
