The Megalodon

Still not a whole lot going on here. And I still can not talk too much about the nothing much going on.

It is just like that.

Sooner or later things will pick up. At least that is what I keep saying. And sooner or later that will be the case. But not now.

Anyhow - there is no telling what the future has in store. Probably good stuff. Assuming that the Earth does not get whacked by a rouge comet or the Yellowstone super volcano does not erupt or something like that.

And if it does - oh well! Shit happens. And sometimes there is a mass extinction where 90% or more of the life on the planet is wiped out. At times like this it seems that the dominate species do the worst. Ask the megalodon. Not much is left of this once mighty fish. It seems to have gone extinct in the last mass extinction event.

And this was a good thing for us lowly mammals. This is an actual megalodon tooth. If these things were still roaming the high seas, the water would be a scarier place. Just take a gander at that tooth!

Of course nobody really knows just how large this fish was. The problem with sharks is that the only bones they have is the jaw and teeth. The rest of the fish is cartilage, guts, scales, muscle, and other soft tissues. This stuff tends to rot away long before it can be fossilized.

However, it does not take a genius to figure out from the tooth that the ancient shark was HUGE. Way larger than any shark needs to be. If any were left, they would truly be sea monsters.

SO....getting back to whatever it was I was talking about - barring any mass extinction events, things are bound to pick up here. Sooner or later.

It looks like the megalodon forgot to brush his teeth. Because his tooth turned all black.

That tooth is massive. I could not even fathom. There is a lot of nothingness going on here, too.

Cathouse is in the house!! Long time since I've seen her pretty face.

Daisy - Lets see how your teeth look in 65 million years :)

Teri - Long time no see! Welcome back.

Emma - the prehistoric shark was a beast. Good thing that critter is no more.

M@ - you said it! Thanks to the last mass extinction mammals were able to take the place over. With large lizards and huge sharks on the planet it is doubtful there would be any humans, for we lack claws and teeth and can not run fast and probably taste good.

Doozie - you are such the activist! Always trying to promote voice imodulation awareness.

Teri - no problem. Some things really get me going.
