Carcharocles megalodon is an extinct species of megatoothed shark that lived during the early Miocene to late Pliocene epochs of the Neogene period (23 to 2.6 mya). It was one of the largest marine predators to have existed, vastly outweighing the modern Great White Shark and other marine reptiles such as Plesiosaurs and Mosasaurs. C. megalodon could grow up to 60 feet (18 meters) and over, weighing approximately one hundred tons. Its diet consisted mainly of prehistoric whales, dolphins and giant sea turtles; fossilized bones of marine mammals have been found with bite marks matching the teeth of megalodon.
