What Can Kill A Megalodon

The Megalodon was a giant shark that used to swim in ancient oceans. It was one of the largest carnivorous fish ever to live, and it could grow up to 60 feet long. The Megalodon went extinct around 2 million years ago, but there are many theories about what killed it off.

Overfishing: Many people believe that overfishing by humans is responsible for the extinction of the Megalodon. As more people caught sharks for food or sport, there were fewer sharks left in the ocean for the Megalodon to eat.

Global Warming: Global warming has been linked to many species going extinct over the last century. If global warming caused water temperatures to rise too much or too fast, this may have caused problems for the Megalodon’s sensitive body temperature and internal organs.

Ocean Acidification: Many scientists believe that ocean acidification will be one of the biggest threats facing our oceans in the future. Ocean acidification happens when carbon dioxide (CO2) enters seawater and reacts with water molecules to form carbonic acid (H2CO3). This causes pH levels in seawater to drop and become more acidic, which can damage marine life like corals and shellfish by making their shells thinner.
