  • The enormous, extinct shark Megalodon probably doesn’t make you think of parenting and playdates.
  • The results suggest that Megalodon adults commonly raised their young in nursery areas, where the wee shark babies would be protected until they were able to fend for themselves against other ocean predators.
  • It also raises the possibility that the decline of available nursery sites may have contributed to the giant shark’s extinction.
