Keeping this in consideration, what was the average size of a Megalodon?
The Megalodon is estimated to have been around15-24 meters long (50-78 ft., compared to a typical adult GreatWhite Shark which is only 6m or 20 ft long). It is also estimatedthat the bite force the Megalodon's jaws could generate wassomewhere in the vicinity of 108,514 N – 182,201 N (11-18tons of force).
Similarly, you may ask, how heavy is the Megalodon?
Fact #1. The Megalodon Shark Was The LargestPredator That Ever Lived. Reaching lengths of up to 60-70 feet andan estimated maximum weight of over 60 tons, the Megalodonis the largest known predator in Earth's history. The modern SpermWhale is longer, but probably not as heavy as theMegalodon.
Emma explains, 'With its large serrated teethmegalodon would have eaten meat - most likely whalesand large fish, and probably other sharks. If you are that big youneed to eat a lot of food, so large prey is required.' Thiswould have included animals as small as dolphins and as large ashumpback whales.
