Do megalodons actually exist? Or they are an extinct species? According to many legends, the giant sharks live somewhere deep into the waters.

But what does science has to say about that? Science has managed to prove that these species lived approximately 2.3 million years ago, during the Early Miocene to the end of the Pliocene period. Their name literally means “big tooth”.

They are closely related to the great white shark. What is the cause of their extinction? According to some scientists, they died because of increased competition from predators, and lack of prey.

It is hard to imagine that these abnormally big creatures had troubles finding prey. But that is the case. This documentary takes a look into these legendary and mythical creatures.
