According to a recent research, a modern apex predator may have driven the Megalodon to extinction millions of years ago.
The megalodon was present 20 million years ago and stayed at the top of the shark food chain until 3.6 million years ago
"Megalodon's enormous fossilised teeth have led to its depiction as a deadly giant predatory shark.
We still don't know how it looked "Kenshu Shimada, a DePaul paleobiology professor and research co-author, emailed USA TODAY.
A 2019 research suggests that the great white shark's development may be killing off U.S. creatures.
The great white shark is four times smaller than the megalodon, so it wasn't like "The Meg" vs. "Jaws."
