Mega shark tooth found in Australia

A rare set of teeth from a giant prehistoric mega-shark have been found in Australia.

The teeth, twice the size of a normal great white, have been found on an Australian beach by a keen-eyed amateur enthusiast.

Philip Mullaly was strolling along a beach area on the country’s famous Great Ocean Road, which is around 100 kilometres from Melbourne.

The shark, which stalked Australia’s oceans around 25 million years ago, feasting on small whales and penguins, could grow more than 18 metres long, almost three the length of today’s great white shark.
