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)!
