    Article quote:
    I say “for now” because great whites are declining along with most shark species, some of which have experienced alarming drops in their numbers in just the past two decades. Biologists are not sure what caused the once dominant megalodon to become extinct two million years ago, but there will be no debate about who is to blame if today’s top predator is gone tomorrow.

    wow! interesting article!

    I would've never thought a GWS was anywhere close to a mako from just their body shape alone, makos are built for speed, GWS' are big and sloooooow lol. but thats neat how they are thinking they are related.

    i think a megaladon would be friggen AWESOME tho ;D
