The world’s largest shark has returned to Gainesville! Prepare to marvel at Megalodon, the gigantic prehistoric shark that once cruised the planet’s oceans. Walk through the full-scale jaws of a 60-foot-long replica of this apex predator, and get a close-up look at fossil specimens and life-size models of other ancient and modern sharks. This touring exhibit has thrilled over 1.5 million visitors in the U.S. and Canada over the past 12 years and now features brand-new graphics and updated scientific research to mark its return home!
