A Mega Predator Of Predators

Imagine! A prehistoric, megatooth shark that lived as recently as 3.6 million years ago, measuring almost 70 feet in length, and living at the very top of its food chain. While others focus on today's sharks, explore with us the largest marine predator that has ever existed, a creature with the power of 276 teeth, each the size of a man’s hand.
