What could eat a Megalodon?
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.
