Megalodon Jaw

I saw this in a Durham: Macaroni Kid listing (thanks!) and while at Crabtree with Sarah C. and the boys, we checked it out. Here is the write up from Sarah C.:

We love the North Carolina Aquariums and while it isn't always easy to get there, a little piece of the aquariums is currently here for your enjoyment. The NC Aquarium at Fort Fisher has loaned a replica of a  Megalodon Shark Jaw to Crabtree Valley Mall. The six foot shark jaw will be on display in Center Court South through May 31, 2011 before being returned to the aquarium as part of an exhibit that opens there in June.


The jaw is encased for protection, but never fear if you have little ones like ours that love to touch things. There is an information board with details about the Megalodon Shark and it includes a fabricated tooth that you are encouraged to touch. You'll also see markers on the floor that note the length the shark that owned these teeth would have been. Let's just say I'm happy to have never met one face to face!

Thanks for the mention of the NC Aquarium at Fort Fisher's Megalodon jaw. We are excited to open the exhibit this summer - and hope to see you soon!
