Megalodon likely had a profound impact on structuring of the marine communities. Fossil remains indicate that this giant shark reached a total length (TL) of more than 16 metres (52 ft), and also affirm that it had a cosmopolitan distribution. Megalodon looked like a stockier version of the great white shark, Carcharodon carcharias , in life. The megalodon meaning "big tooth", from Greek (mega , "big") and (odon , "tooth") is an extinct species of shark that lived roughly from 28 to 1.5 million years ago during the Cenozoic Era (late Oligocene to early Pleistocene).The taxonomic assignment of C. Megalodon has been debated for nearly a century, and is still under dispute with two major interpretations; Carcharodon megalodon (under family Lamnidae) or Carcharocles megalodon (under family Otodontidae). Consequently, the scientific name of this species has been commonly abbreviated to C. The Megalodon dates to 25 million years ago and was 40-100 feet in length, their teeth average 2 to 7 in length.
