Meaning of 'Megalodon'
'Megalodon' has a short but very clear meaning: 'Big Teeth'. The oldest teeth ever found date to 20 million years ago. The largest Megalodon tooth ever found was a whopping 19 centimetres in size. Because, apart from the teeth, no complete fossilised bones have been found, this species received the name 'Megalodon', which also means: 'Big Teeth'.
