Giant prehistoric fish's bite packed 11,000 pounds of force

The biggest great white sharks of our day can only muster half the power of the bite of four-ton, 33-ft. long Dunkleosteus, according to scientists in Chicago.  Despite the horrifying picture below, Dunkleosteus has been extinct for about 360 million years.  Lucky us.

That is So not real! I mean you can tell that is was photoshopped, b/c of a few reasons: 1) it has fake eyes, 2) if it is that big how come we haven't seen it before, and 3) it just simply looks completely artificial.

Relax, Lenora, and look at comment #2.

Ok, it's not real, but even if it were, the ocean is so huge and still unexplored. Being oblivious to all the sea's creatures, even huge ones, would be easy.

I don't know if they still live, I pretty sure of course not, they said the name, and its a fake picture, because the Dunkleosteus, looks like its just pasted on their

This picture begs the question, "how the hell did that fish become extinct?" I guess it just couldn't compete with Marlin, when he was looking for his son Nemo.

Hey Anonymous not all women are stupid I did read the article thank you very much!Oh and Anonymous why are you so anonymous if your going to talk rudely. That seems chicken!

A lot of things in the prehistoric time were huge then I mean T-Rex Teeth were the size of a mans hand! I they say that it could possible be because of the carbon dioxide in the prehistoric time was higher so it made things flourish such a plants and then the prehistoric herbivore would engorge himself which in turn the Carnivore engorged himself with the nutrients that the herbivore ate from the plants!! Just things I reviewed!

...that thing was real. it existed during late devonian period. (380-360 million years ago) it is the largest arththrodire placoderms or armored jawed fish that ever lived (10m or 33ft)..but there's larger than that the megalodon shark (20m or 67ft)a prehistoric shark also, now extinct.. :)

first of all, hunny bunnys, this picture isnt photoshopped!...it isnt real either tho! It is a screen shot of a video: Nigel Marvin's Chased By Dinosaurs. He makes random videos that make him look fucking retarded for trying to make those creates look real! and i agree with a lot of you: READ PICTURE DESCRIPTION! and read comments lol
