Megalodon was the biggest shark believed to exist, it sadly died out due to lack of food from competition with other species of shark and the cooling of the ocean waters. Scientists believe that the global cooling caused 1/3 of the large marine animals to become extinct.
And that the number of the organisms at the bottom of the food chain dropped so considerably, that this caused the larger predators to starve : thus leading their extinction. They are said to have reached up to 15-18 meters in length! Megalodon Sharks are said to have preyed on whales and that its jaw would span 2.7 by 3.4 meters wide!!! These jaws were lined with 276 teeth which could be up to 18cm long! It is said to be the most powerful predator to ever exist!I can post to anywhere in the world! Message me for services and prices!
