Carcharocles angustidens is an extinct species of prehistoric megatoothed shark that lived during the Oligocene and Miocene epochs of the Neogene period (22 to 33 mya). As with most extinct shark, this species is known from fossilized teeth and vertebrae. Most Angustidens grew to around 10 meters (32 ft), but there have been fossils found that indicate a larger size. They were apex predators and their diet likely included penguins, dolphins and whales. C. angustidens was smaller than C. megalodon, but it thought to have been related to it.
