Quotables

Reading a National Geographic article about Seven of the Biggest Beasts of All Time, I came across a quote that needs to be shared. One of the biggest beasts was the Megalodon, a giant shark – the jaws of which, research indicates, carried more force than a T-rex’s maw.  The unbeatable quote, which is meant to help one visualize the size of such a beast, comes from Peter Klimley, a shark expert at UC Davis:

“A great white is about the size of the clasper, or penis, of a male megalodon.”

Note how big Megalodon’s clasper would be if it were the size of great white.  I like the ratio.

Check out the megalodon article to see the quote or other cool pics of sharks and megalodon renderings.
