    One of the most dangerous animals on earth, the sharks kill a lot of people annually. And Megalodon is a species of sharks which are so massive and has been known since a long time. Moreover, the scientists have recently found out its gargantuan girth is some sort of unusual thing they do which is not common in all the species of sharks.

    These sharks are really gigantic and are approximately 15 meters in length, which means about 50 feet. According to the recent researches done by the scientists, the extinct shark in the Lamniformes were about 7 meters more bigger in length than the species of sharks that exists now. It means that we have missed watching a lot of incredibly large species of fishes.

    The Megalodon used to be so massive that the modern sharks would look nothing in front of them. And it gives me goosebumps wondering how dangerous they would have been. It was even bigger than the now known biggest shark species, the white shark which is of about 6m length and the whale sharks whose length ranges between 6-10m.

    These Megalodon sharks are predicted to be 15 million years old. Whereas, now we have only 13 species of lamniform sharks left on this planet. Some common names in this list includes, great white sharks, mako sharks, deep sea goblin sharks, thresher sharks etc.

    Even after so much research, we still have only a few facts that are known about the sharks species. One such interesting thing that recently got known is that a shark’s body is made mostly from cartilages rather than bones. This means that they are extremely flexible and thus a good chaser. Stay tuned to our page for more such interesting facts.
