At 60 feet long, Megalodon was the largest shark that ever lived and a dominant marine predator for 15 million years. The Gulf Coast Exploreum will tell this remarkable story with its exciting, new exhibition, Megalodon: Largest Shark that Ever Lived. Though Megalodon vanished 2 million years ago, its fascinating story inspires lessons for science and shark conservation today with this family-friendly, interactive, hands-on exhibit. Visitors enter a full-size sculpture of Megalodon through massive jaws and embark on a journey through this fantastic ancient creature and the world it inhabited– its size, structure, diet, lifespan, relatives, neighbors, evolution, extinction and the science that continues to reveal Megalodon’s tale.
