In Mexico found the teeth of the worst sharks in the history

Millions of years ago in the waters of our planet lived real giants

Just think — right now as you read this news on several parts of the world archaeologists relentlessly . Their enthusiasm is easy to understand because finding ancient artifacts or bones of any animal, they can learn much about the distant past of the Earth. Recently in the Mexican state of Yucatan, the scientists were lucky to find teeth of several species of sharks, among which were fragments of the skeleton of the underwater monster — Megalodon. This finding proved the age-old assumption of the researchers that millions of years ago part of modern Mexico was located under water.

According to the newspaper , the bones were found in the walls of the funnel, which formed after the collapse of the vault of a limestone cave called Hawes. This cave is located near the capital of the Mexican state of Yucatan — Merida. It was built in the XVI century on the site of the crater left after the fall of 60 million years ago Chekalovskoe of the asteroid. Researchers have long assumed that once upon a time this region was under water and evidence of this has finally been found.

biggest shark in the world

According to the researcher of the caves of Kai Neath Vilchis Zapata and his assistant Eric Sosa Rodriguez, they managed to find and explore at least 13 teeth. Of the fossils belonged to living the Mako shark and the shark piononos. However, in addition, scientists have discovered the remains of an ancient monster-Megalodon, which lived on our planet more than 2.5 million years ago. He and two other sharks, by the way, there was one common ancestor — a tiny fish that lived directly on the seabed.

It is Noteworthy that in addition to the remains of the underwater predators, archaeologists found part of a human skeleton. Research suggests human bones belonged to the teenager, but other information, researchers still could not give. Perhaps, after studying the remains of anthropologists, the society will be known the age of the teenager was found. It is likely that long ago he was the victim of sharks, so his bones were found along with the remains of predators. It is also possible that he had wandered and died in the cave long after the study part of Mexico looked out from under the water.

What was Mexico millions of years ago?

By the Way, it is likely that the ancient inhabitants of these territories knew that there are sharks here. The fact that the name of the limestone caves Hawes can be translated as "shark". Anyway, on the territory of the Mexican state of Yucatan, you can find a lot of similar caves at the moment, researchers know about 6 000 craters formed after the collapse of the caves. Most likely, within their walls, too, immured the remains of ancient aquatic creatures, so archaeologists have yet to do a lot of work.

Finally I want to recommend a documentary called "the Shark-monster. Megalodon alive" from the Discovery channel. It tells about an ancient undersea monster and the possibility of the existence at the present time. Highly recommend to view!
