Giant extinct species of shark that lived approvximately 15.9 to 2.6 million years ago, during the Cenozoic Era.
15.9 to 2.6 million years ago lived Megalodon. A shark so large it could expand its jaws to engulf an elephant whole. Despite no evidence proving these titanic beasts are still swimming our ocens today, there have been disturbing reports to the contrary.
In 1918 fishermen off the coast of Australia refused to return to the ocean after a massive shark destroyed their gear. All the men reported a shark as long as the 115 foot wharf they were standing on. Also they claimed it was ghostly white as if it had been living at tremedous depths far from any light.
In 1960, again off the ghost of Australia, the captain of a 55 foot long fishing boat reported seeing a shark similar to the one reported in 1918.
In 2014 a 9 foot Great White shark that had been tagged by scientists for study just off the coast of Australia dissapears after only 4 months. The tag was found washed ashore. The data in the tag showed the Great White had suddenly either dove or was dragged to the tremendous depth of 1,900 feet. The temperture rose 32 degrees, indicating that the shark and tag had been devoured by a larger predator. The tag took 8 days to leave the body of whatever ate that shark.
