The newest exhibit, called "Megalodon: Largest Shark that Ever Lived" is open. 

This 5,000-square-foot traveling exhibit highlights the adaptations, biology and misconceptions of Megalodon, an enormous prehistoric shark that once cruised all the world’s oceans. 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.

The exhibit conveys current research findings of Florida Museum paleontologists, and showcases both fossil and modern shark specimens and full-scale models from several collections. People have collected Megalodon teeth for thousands of years, and today Megalodon has near-cult status. The exhibit capitalizes on the public’s fascination with fossil sharks as ambassadors for science and shark conservation.

Megalodon was produced by the Florida Museum of Natural History with support from the National Science Foundation.
