    5 Shark Tooth Necklaces & Jewelry That We Should Be Talking About Instead of Kim K MetGala Look

    With over 400M years of survival instinct to become the ultimate sea predator, sharks are a subject of both fear and fascination. They symbolize strength, power, grace while being mystical. It’s only natural why more and more people are drawn to these amazing jewelry pieces time and again. With that being said, here are five shark teeth necklaces and ornamental pieces that should be a part of your jewelry:

    Lesser Known Facts About The ‘Big Tooth’ Shark

    It was during the Miocene and Pliocene eras that the renowned shark, Megalodon, inhabited the marine environment and preyed upon baleen whales, toothed whales, sirenians, fish, seals, and many other marine animals. These sharks were the largest fish to ever inhabit the oceans; some Megalodon sharks grew to 59 feet (18 meters) or more in length.. Paleontologists believe these sharks dominated the oceans because their teeth have been found on every continent of the plant Earth except Antarctica. However, apart from their big teeth, fierce predatory nature, and enormous sizes, there are some other surprising facts that many people do not know about these gargantuan sharks. Let’s see what those facts are!

    A Single Megalodon Weighed As Much As Eight Elephants

    Scientists believe that Megalodons weighted up to 143,000 pounds, which converts into 65,000 in kilograms. And what’s even more surprising, female Megalodons are believed to have been twice the size of male Megalodons. Scientists have come to these conclusions purely on the basis of Megalodon’s fossil remains, which are mainly teeth. They looked at Great White sharks’ teeth size and compared it with their other dimensions. Using these correlations, they calculated the weight and size of Megalodons.

    Megalodon’s Babies Were Cannibal

    We all know that Megalodons were a ferocious, apex predator of their time. However, it is believed that they had begun showing their rapacious behavior even before reaching the ocean in the wombs of their mother. Baby Megalodons, increased their chances of survival, by eating their own siblings in the womb. Scientists believe that baby Megalodons exhibited this behavior to stop other embryo from taking significant space in the womb. Doing this allowed the surviving shark to grow and reach lengths of 6.6 feet at birth without any trouble.

    Megalodons May Have Met Their Demise Through Cold Water

    4 Most Amazing Dinosaur Fossils to Be Ever Discovered

    Dinosaurs are one of the – if not the – most amazing creatures to ever roam the earth. Ranging from the size of tiny birds to that of large buildings, these prehistoric animals once battled for dominance over the planet, but due to causes that aren’t completely clear, they went extinct around 66 million years ago. But that hasn’t stopped people – scientists and the common man, alike – from being fascinated by them, trying to study them and learning their secrets. Fossils play an important role in that.

    Deinonychus: The Red Claw Dinosaur

    Deinonychus, a 7-foot-long dinosaur belonging to a genus of dinosaurs known as maniraptors, or "hand-robbers." It has sharp claws on its hands and feet for capturing and holding prey and was known as the red terrible claw dinosaur. The hollow bones and long legs of the dinosaur indicate quick and agile mobility.

    The Deinonychus exhibit is the world's sole genuine fossil example of its kind on display. The skeletons of Deinonychus and early birds are comparable, indicating that current birds are descended from small dinosaurs. Deinonychus could cling to its prey with its lethal front claws. Each foot swiveled one huge claw, ready to rip prey apart with a kick. When not in use, the claw was kept sharp by being stored out of the way. Deinonychus might have pursued Tenontosaurus. It's been speculated that Deinonychus lived and hunted in packs, based on the discovery of several hundred Deinonychus bones in a single quarry by paleontologists John Ostrom and Grant E. Meyer in southern Montana in 1964. Deinonychus remains are frequently found with skeletons of the ornithopod dinosaur Tenontosaurus, implying that it ate and possibly hunted them. The discovery of Deinonychus, a visibly active, nimble predator identified and described by John Ostrom, changed the scientific (and public) understanding of dinosaurs and opened the door to the hypothesis that dinosaurs may have been warm-blooded.

    After noticing parallels between Deinonychus' 'hand' and those of birds several years later, Ostrom resurrected the theory that birds are descended from dinosaurs. This concept is almost universally acknowledged thirty years later. In fact, Deinonychus and other dromaeosaurids seem so much like birds that it's been questioned if they're actual birds. This red terrible claw dinosaur may have carried feathers,

    5 Surviving Facts about Rare Trilobites Fossils That Every Fossil Enthusiast Should Know

    540 million years ago, there were trilobites, one of the biggest marine population with the most species back then that kept dotting the ocean floors for the next 270 million years before their existence came to an end. These 270 million were their era of glory when they survived, thrived, and eventually turned into rare trilobite fossils that continue to excite fossil enthusiasts.

    Trilobites get their name from the Latin language where tri-lob-ite means three part body that are cephalon, thorax, and pygidium. In case you’re someone who loves knowing about fossils and their deep secrets, trilobites can be a great choice. They offer everything a fossil enthusiast looks for.

    Here are 5 interesting facts about these rare trilobites that will leave you surprised:

    1. There are more than 20,000 recorded species


      This one thing is enough to understand the scale at which trilobites survived and thrived the ocean waters. The extent of their existence was so huge that their fossils can be found in all parts of this globe, including the seven continents. They were one of the most successful marine creatures at that time.
    2. They were all about diversity


      The number says it ll. To further elaborate it, trilobites were present in diversity, with a variety of features in terms of size, shape, and built. While some were 28-inch long, others were about just a millimetre. Some had larger eyes while others didn’t have it at all. The variety can also be observed in the form of defensive spines and smooth shells.
    3. They witnessed the dawn of the Cambrian period


      The organisms that themselves are now extinct, came into existence at the time when the Cambrian period was at its decline. This period was a transforming chapter in our pla
