Shark horror: Palm-sized Megalodon tooth found in the Philippines

The shark’s giant teeth, however, are an exception and have survived through millions of years.

As a result, scientists studying the megalodon can only do so through their teeth.

But even with a limited fossil record, scientists have been able to estimate the shark’s size and diet.

The NM Bohol Area Museum said in a Facebook post: “The museum said: “These fossils give clues about the creature and why it went extinct.”

Based on the fossil record, the largest megalodons measured up to 60ft (18m) on length – three times bigger than the great white.
