The Biggest Shark by deskridge The Biggest Shark by deskridge

"The Biggest Shark"

Out of the murky waters emerge menacing forms.  Two massive sharks prowl though beds of seaweed in prehistoric ocean shallows.  A little red crab, too small for the great predators to take notice of looks up from the sandy sea floor.  

Continuing my series of aquatic themed paleoart, I decided to depict the biggest shark of all time: Megalodon.  This was a shark four times the size of the modern Great White.  If these creatures were around today and one came upon you scuba diving, it could swallow you in a single bite.

A disclaimer about my paleoart:

When it comes to paleoart, the images I create favor 'art' more than 'paleo'. While I try my best to depict animals as accurately as possible I'm make no claim that they 100% scientifically accurate. The same goes for the environment I depict them in. I am primarily interested in creating aesthetically pleasing images and paintings. Scientific accuracy comes second behind artistic expression.

Note: the creation of this image involved the use of purchased products

Tools used: Poser, Vue, GIMP, Photomatix

Thanks for looking!

Megalodon in shallow waters surrounded by kelp and a tiny crab on the ground?- no better way to make this image even more awesome, after it reached the maximum level of awesomeness! :la:

This feels like diving in the Pliocene and watching Carcharocles megalodon for myself! Great! :D

They have seemed to have found significant evidence the Megaladon is still alive.  See Shark Week, years 2013 and 2014.
