It's basically just a huge freaking shark. ''Carcharodon megalodon'' (Now [[ScienceMarchesOn possibly]] ''Carcharocles megalodon'' - see [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Megaladon#Taxonomy_and_evolution the other wiki]] for details) lived from 15.9 to 2.6 million years ago, was at least 15m long at the very minimum and almost certainly grew up to 18 metres, weighed 75 tons (making it the largest undisputed apex predator of all time), and was an apex predator that reigned for 20 million years (20 times longer than most others), specialized in killing whales, and went extinct due to the closing of the Central American Seaway, the migratory, breeding and hunting grounds of it and its prey. However in low grade schlock movies it will be uncovered after being frozen in ice and go on a superhunting rampage, tracking down our intrepid heroes all over the world before eating Boeing 747's in a single bite ''while flying''.

* Back during the beta period of ''VideoGame/EverQuest'', the Megalodon was an absolutely gigantic shark found in Lake Rathe. It's jaw size was larger than a giant. Because the area itself is dotted with various islands, this made it extremely difficult for the monster to actually ''stay in the water'', and it was eventually removed from the game right before the game went live. The Megalodon would later be put back into Lake Rathe as a special encounter boss battle during the 2nd Epic Quest for the Shaman class, but it wasn't nearly as large as the original was.
