The prehistoric animal's name literally translates to "Big Tooth" which is clearly evident from the size of the ancient jaws placed in Plaza de la Paz. It might seem misplaced in this idyllic Southern California city, yet Laguna Niguel was (10 million years ago) a deep ocean basin. Dry land means that we've had the advantage of discovering the fossils and remnants of the Miocene Epoch. Unfortunately for Megalodon, a colder climate shift probably contributed to the demise of the species. (Submitted by fox trot)
