To celebrate the 25th anniversary of Shark Week, Animal Planet is resurrecting the largest shark to ever swim in our oceans: the megalodon. Measuring up to 52 feet in length and weighing approximately 100,000 pounds, these prehistoric predators were the size of a humpback whale. However, unlike the placid humpback, the megalodon had 250 six inch long teeth, set in jaws six feet wide and eight feet tall, enabling it to exert a stronger bite force than any other creature in our planet's history. Watch as a crew including MythBusters' Kari Byron, Grant Imahara and Tori Belleci, come together to reconstruct this million year old marine monster and put its massive hydraulic jaws to the test.
