Carcharodon carcharias is the great white shark.
Carcharodon megalodon is the giant or megalodon shark, a close relative of
the great white shark that has been extinct for at least 3 milion years. We
only have the fossil teeth of this shark and they are more than twice the
length of a great white shark's teeth. Scientists estimate that they may
have reach a length of more than 50 feet (15 m) and a weight of 25 tons
(25,000 kg), considerably larger than the great white shark.
