Megalodon was a gigantic, prehistoric shark with teeth as big as a human hand that ruled the oceans 3-16 million years ago. We’ll explore the Meg’s place in the ancient food web from traces of food left behind in the fossilized enamel of their teeth and look for insights into why the Megalodon went extinct.

We are joined by researcher Dr. Emma Kast and Paleontologist Dr. Bruce MacFadden.
