Megalodon: Largest Shark That Ever Lived

at Sam Noble Oklahoma Museum of Natural History
 
 

Can you imagine a 60-foot shark swimming around in our oceans? Enter Sam Noble Oklahoma Museum’s latest traveling exhibit, “Megalodon: Largest Shark That Ever Lived,” and find yourself walking through a full-size sculpture of this dominant marine predator. Once inside the massive jaws, visitors are able to uncover the shark’s history and the world it inhabited, including its diet, lifespan, relatives, neighbors, evolution and extinction.

Although Megalodon vanished 2 million years ago, its overwhelming size and fascinating story continue to be a source of inspiration for shark conservation and protection of our oceans. Scientists estimate humans kill 100 million sharks, skates and rays each year, and this exhibit is a fascinating showcase of their importance to our marine ecosystem. Visit the Sam Noble Oklahoma Museum of Natural History to peruse fossils, modern shark specimens and full-scale models of several sharks until Sunday, January 6. Dun dun ... dun dun!
