Scourge of the Sea


Author(s):
Abstract:
Millions of years ago Eastern NC was a vast sea, roamed by prehistoric fish, some with modern-day descendants and some that have vanished completely, leaving only fossil specimens. One of these was a shark known as Megalodon, the largest shark that ever lived. Bones of this large predator have been found all over the world. The Coastal Plain had one of the largest concentrations from 3- to 20-million years ago, with remains being found from Washington to Goldsboro and down to Wilmington.
