Megalodon



Scientific Classification
  Kingdom Animalia
  Phylum Chordata
  Class Chondrichthyes
  Subclass Elasmobranchii
  Order Lamniformes
  Family Lamnidae
  Genus Carcharodon
  Species Carcharodon megalodon
Megalodon (full name Carcharodon megalodon) was a gigantic prehistoric shark that lived from the Miocene epoch to the Pleistocene epoch, between about 18 million years ago, and 1.5 million years ago.

Megalodon is the largest carnivorous fish known. It could grow to nearly 50 feet (15 meters) in length, and is thought to have fed upon cetaceans (such as whales and dolphins), sirenians (sea cows), and pinnipeds (semi-aquatic mammals such as seals and sea lions).

A Megalodon tooth is today the State Fossil of US state of Georgia.
