Paleo Sharks: Survival of the Strangest

    Paleo Sharks: Survival of the Strangest

    Paleo sharks were the largest sharks from the times of dinosaurs, they make  the sharks of today seem like the tamest creatures in the waters. This is one time period in shark history not illustrated or talked about much, kids will love the richly drawn pictures in this 48 page volume of shark history.

    Megalodon was very similar to today’s great white shark—except in size. The great white can grow to about 25 feet long and weigh about 2 tons (4,000 pounds). But scientists believe megalodon grew up to 50 feet long and might have weighed close to 50 tons!

    Megalodon ate anything it wanted. Its huge and powerful jaws were packed with 6-inch-tall, razor-edged, triangular teeth that sliced through its prey. Megalodon probably hunted the biggest fish and whales that swam the oceans of the Cenozoic era.
