A Picture of the Head of Megalodon (Carcharodon megalodon)

We get lots of young palaeontologists asking us about the fearsome prehistoric fish known as Megalodon (C. megalodon)*, so team members at Everything Dinosaur have created a picture of the “business end” of this ferocious marine predator.  We also receive lots of emails about the availability of a Megalodon shark model.

Megalodon Shark Model

Scientists estimate that his shark may have reached lengths in excess of sixteen metres.  Fossils of its triangular shaped teeth have been found in Europe, Asia, Australia, Africa and the Americas.  A few Megalodon shark models have been made.  For example, PNSO a Chinese manufacturer currently have two Megalodon shark models within their product range.

Please note – following a taxonomic revision of shark fossil material this animal has been reclassified as Otodus megalodon.
