Scale model shark, megalodon Otodus (Carcharocles)

Approximately 50 centimeters long.

This scale model of the extinct megalodon shark was used for digital rendering. A 3D scan was made for a realistic movie about marine life. The animation contains other scale models that are to be seen on this site. Such as the leatherback turtle, Nehalaennia devossi, and the Livyatan Melvillei. The motion picture can be seen in the historical museum Historyland, Hellevoetsluis.

Arguably the greatest predator to ever have roamed the earth.  The largest adults were apex predators who could very well eat whatever they set their sights on.
