Megalodon (Carcharocles megalodon), an extinct species of shark, lived
around 23 to 2.6 million years ago, from the Early Miocene to the Late
Pliocene. Once thought to be closely related to the great white shark
(C. carcharias), it may be a member of the extinct family Otodontidae.
It may have looked like a stocky great white, measuring at most 18
meters (59 ft), and averaging 10.5 metres (34 ft). Its large jaws
exerted an estimated bite force of 108,500 to 182,200 newtons (24,400 to
41,000 lbf), coupled with thick teeth to grab large, struggling prey,
crushing the heart and lungs of the marine mammals – mainly baleen
whales – that it fed on in oceans around the world. It is thought
that its decline was due to competition from other large predators (such
as Livyatan), the ice ages, and the shift in whale populations. The
shark has made appearances in media such as the Discovery Channel's
docufiction Megalodon: The Monster Shark Lives.

"Beware of the false prophets! They come to you wearing sheep's clothing, but underneath they are hungry wolves! You will recognize them by their fruit. Can people pick grapes from thorn bushes, or figs from thistles?
Matthew 7: 15-16 Complete Jewish Bible

Dear friends, don't trust every spirit. On the contrary, test the spirits to see whether they are from God; because many false prophets have gone out into the world.
