A prehistoric shark called Carcharodom Megalodon made news in October 2012. Fossils of the biggest shark ever were discovered near Tenerife of the Canary Islands of Spain on a bank called Banco Concepción at an ocean depth of 1000 meters.
Needless to say is that the most scary movies copied the teeth and jaw of this legendary traveler of the seas.
Fossils and other teeth of a now extinct Great White shark and other large ocean creatures were also spotted in the same submarine location of the isle of Graciosa.
Unfortunately, this vertebrate predator which only possessed cartilage lacked proper bones. The latter would have fossilized better for more exact present references.
The discovery may let us learn more about the surroundings of the Canary Islands which came into being between 25 million and 5 million years ago.
From prehistoric shark back to whale watching where pilot whales together with dolphins must be protected at all cost.
