Writing in a conversational style for the lay person -- without forsaking science -- the author embarks on a world-wide hunt for the largest predatory fish and most fearsome shark ever to inhabit our global seas. After 62 million years, the fossil record for this 60-foot aqua-motive known as C. megalodon abruptly ends.
In part, this is a color-illustrated guide book that pinpoints where to search for Meg teeth and other shark fossils in Florida and elsewhere, as well as how to identify the various species. It is also meant to invite lively discussions about how such a menacing predator became extinct, or whether it is still lurking deep below the ocean’s surface. Additionally, the book is a rallying cry for treating today’s sharks (as well as all life forms) with as much respect as we ourselves would want to be treated.

When author Mark Renz is not writing about C. megalodon sharks, he is leading guided expeditions into the huge shark's former lair, looking for C. megalodon shark fossils. This book reflects his intimacy with his subject and his passion for life, past and present. "MEGALODON: Hunting the Hunter" may prompt you to grab your mask and snorkel, or shovel and screen, to search for your own "Meg" teeth. It might also make you more protective of living sharks, even if you don't care to swim with them!From the Author:
How could I not be smitten by a prehistoric shark nearly the length of two school buses and weighing as much as 400 professional football linebackers at 250 pounds each? Every time I locate a large serrated tooth from this magnificent beast, I am reminded that all animals -- no matter how invincible they appear -- can easily disappear in the geological blink of an eye. Meg’s teeth are found all over the world, from Florida, up the eastern seaboard to Maryland, west to California, south to Mexico and South America, and on to Belgium and Japan. It ruled the seas for millions of years and now it's gone. This book is not Meg's complete story, but I hope it will be a good start.
