Meaning of 'Megalodon
Megalodon' has a short but very clear meaning: 'Big Teeth'. The oldest teeth ever found date back 20 million years. The largest Megalodon tooth ever found was no less than 19 centimetres in size. Because no complete fossilised bones have been found apart from the teeth, this species was given the name 'Megalodon', which also means: 'Big Teeth'.
The teeth of Megalodon are practically the only fossils found of this magnificent species, and those teeth speak volumes.
