 EXHIBIT: PREHISTORIC SHARKS

Living Sharks Museum houses a collection of diverse paleontological specimens from all over the United States, as well as international locales. Over 50 species of prehistoric sharks are represented, alongside a display of shark prey items from the same localities. Collected personally by our curator over 20 years of travels, we are excited to be able to share such a diverse collection. The paleontology collection will also be made available online for comparative study.

More to come!
