Megalodon sharks swam the oceans more than two million years ago and sported 276 teeth the size of a human hand at the business end of their 60 foot long bodies. Although they are now extinct, they are fearsome predators that have made their way into our myths, legends, and sci-fi stories.
Since February 1, 2014 Burpee Museum has been hosting Megalodon: Largest Shark that Ever Lived, a traveling exhibit from the Florida Museum of Natural History. Burpee staff and visitors have been loving every minute of it! Megalodon: Largest Shark that Ever Lived is an impressive traveling exhibit. It encompasses the awe inspiring magnitude of Megalodon sharks, their impressive fossil history as well as fascinating modern shark biodiversity and conservation.
Megalodon’s run at Burpee Museum ends next Tuesday. If you’re in the area, help Burpee Museum send Megalodon off in style and attend the Beach Bash on Sunday, April 27 from 12-5pm! The Beach Bash is included with paid admission to Megalodon: Largest Shark that Ever Lived on Sunday.
