Walk through full-scale jaws into a Megalodon sculpture and begin to explore the story of this fantastic ancient creature – its size, structure, diet, lifespan, relatives, neighbors, evolution, extinction and the science that continues to reveal Megalodon’s tale.

Megalodon is the largest shark that ever lived! Estimated to be approximately 60 feet in length, this formidable top predator occupied the world’s ancient oceans 17-2 million years ago. Megalodon consumed vast quantities of marine animals and likely contributed to the stability of ecosystems – as top predators do today. Understanding Megalodon’s life history is critical to improving our knowledge of evolution and living shark conservation.

Related to the modern great white and mako sharks, Megalodon was a dominant marine predator for 15 million years before vanishing 2 million years ago. Megalodon: Largest Shark that Ever Lived conveys current research findings of Florida Museum of Natural History paleontologists, and showcases both fossil and modern shark specimens and full-scale models from several collections. Be consumed with awe, walk away with respect!
