So big eating starts early?
Thank goodness! I spend quite a bit of time swimming in the sea, and have constantly had a nagging worry about the thought of being bitten in half by a 60 — 80 foot shark. Now I know they were only about 50 feet long, I will be far more relaxed about the whole thing.
A massive haul of huge razor-sharp teeth which belonged to the biggest fish that ever lived were stumbled on in a desert by chance.
The bumper find of megalodon teeth in the Atacama desert in Chile is now "one of the largest scientific collections of megalodon teeth in the world."
"[It's] by far the largest shark of all time, a super predator whose wingspan is estimated to be between 16 and 20 metres (52 and 66 feet) long," said Atacama Palaeontology's Executive Director, Pablo Quilodran.
Bloody hell! Those movies on the SYFY channel were right after all!"[It's] by far the largest shark of all time, a super predator whose wingspan is estimated to be between 16 and 20 metres (52 and 66 feet) long,"
I have never heard "wingspan" referred to for shark size.
