The prehistoric megalodon shark was one of the most terrifying predators the world has ever seen. With an average length between 33 and 59 feet, jaws up to seven feet wide, and serrated teeth four times larger than those of a great white, a large megalodon could crush a car with a single bite. Interestingly, there are some people on the internet who think the megalodon never actually went extinct. Of course, these theories are false. But for the sake of argument… what if the ferocious megalodon shark was still out there, patrolling the oceans?
