Free Online Event! The Rise and Fall of the Megatoothed Sharks
Join the EcoCentre's palaeontologist Ben Francischelli on a journey to uncover the largest sharks that ever existed. The Megalodon was a bone-crunching apex predator that fed on the flesh of other whales. It was incredibly successful, with its lineage existing for more than 60 million years in the fossil record until its untimely demise over 3 million years ago. How did one of the largest macro-predators of all time go extinct? In this online talk, Ben will be examining the evolution, rise, and ultimate downfall of this monstrous shark and some of the new fossil evidence he's finding in one of their last strongholds in Australia.
