One of the things you’ll want last time you’re swimming in the sea is a shark attack. Indeed, the number of survivors of shark attacks is quite small. However, the world’s largest known shark Megalodon, namely the scientific name Carcharocles megalodon, lived here many years ago and thought to be extinct. Many domestic and foreign sources say that the great white shark is a distant cousin. Its size is 60 ft. This is about 10 times the size of a human. However, they are thought to have a weight of 70 tons. This is 10 times the weight of an elephant.
Is Megalodon Living?
This shark species, which is quite large in size, has lived in the great ocean and atlantic ocean. Megalodon shark is carnivorous and is said to be fed with large whales. Whales in the middle size of the nose, a large whale is the tail, a small whale body is estimated to attack from the body. Megalodone with sharp large teeth, strong jaw muscles and cartilage-coated skeletal structure was present. However, it is said to be one of the largest and predatory carnivorous creatures known in the oceans.
The average life expectancy of megalodones is estimated to be between 25 and 40 years. Due to the abnormal climate change of the generation of megalodones together with the whales migrating from warm waters to cold water, and megalodones are not found in this cold climate resistant structure, it is estimated that whales are exhausted as a result of immigration as a result of their migration.
megalodon femaleThe last live megalodon is estimated to have lived between 1.5 and 25 million years ago. If this animal, which admires people with its dimensions, is alive today, we cannot even guess what kind of ecosystem would be in the oceans. In fact, it is not difficult to say that science is a living creature, even if its size is estimated by the 18-cm tooth fossils found today.
However, the exact dimensions of the skeletal fossil are not known due to the deficiencies. The generation of megalodons, the major teeth of the name in Turkish, was depleted 2.5 million years ago. The largest shark living today, the whale shark is 5.5 – 10 meters in length, considering that the megalodonun next to a fairly small.
It is estimated that it has to consume between 600 and 1200 kg of meat per day. What is thought to have a jaw pressure of about 20 tonnes is evoked by what this creature can do. As a matter of fact, this jaw pressure is quite sufficient for hunting almost every whale in the ocean.
Some scientists think that the generation of megalodons is not exhausted. However, although they cannot give an acceptable explanation, it is said that megalodones are as much nutrients as they can survive in the ocean and are stored in the depths of the ocean to adapt to climate changes and water temperatures. However, there is no definitive answer because there is no document that has ever been encountered in the past.
Today, it is not thought to be an ocean creature that can hunt megalodone. Indeed, the biggest and predatory shark living is the küt Great White Shark Beyaz and its mass is between 680-1000 kg. However, females are between 4.5 and 6.4 meters in size. When they come side by side with Megalodon, the size difference is quite high.
Despite their size, megalodones are estimated to be very good swimmers. Indeed, the ingenuity found on the fins of a creature with such en gigantic san dimensions is not the kind to be underestimated at all.
Considering that 70% of the world consists of water, and the fact that there are many undiscovered places in the depths of the oceans, it is still a matter of curiosity whether the generation of megalodones is depleted.
World’s Largest Shark
The world’s largest shark, as it is known, is a great white shark. But there is such a living that lived in prehistory that if he were to live, he would be the most predatory of the planet, the ruler of the ocean and the largest of the shark species. His name is megalodon. The largest living blue whale living today. The whale killer megalodone does not live today and the blue whale is twice as big as megalodone does not feed it, but considering the predatory nature of the megalodone, it can even attack blue whales for pleasure.
Megalodon, about 3.5 times larger than the largest white shark on the planet, is seen as the ancestor of the great white. Although there are rumors that she lives today but is not seen in deep water, there is no recorded evidence.
