Enter the world of Megalodon, the gigantic prehistoric shark that once commanded the world’s oceans! Be consumed with awe walking through a full-scale sculptural replica of the 60-foot-long apex predator, and explore the life of this fantastic ancient creature.
Learn about Megalodon and how new scientific discoveries continue to reveal its remarkable story, including its enormous size, diet, relatives, evolution, and ultimate extinction. The object-rich exhibit features real fossil specimens, full-scale models of ancient and modern sharks, and tooth-shaped display units with actual Megalodon fossils.
This is your last chance to visit this traveling exhibition from the Florida Museum of Natural History.
The Megalodon exhibit was produced by the Florida Museum of Natural History with support from the National Science Foundation.
