The Tethys Ocean Project
Shark Exhibit

We are happy to have The Tethys Ocean Project return for the 14th year with an exciting new exhibit featuring sharks. Included in the exhibit will be a Hammer Head Shark, the jaws of the Great White Shark, the largest preditory shark menacing the oceans now. Also on display will be the kids favorite shark, Megladon, one of the largest sharks to have haunted prehistoric oceans.

The Schaffert family will be on hand throughout the show to chat with visitors and share their passion for ancient marine fossils.

MLMS would like to extend an enormous THANK YOU! to Dr. Alan and Cris Schaffert for providing this special exhibit exclusively to our show.


The 2017 Tethys Ocean Project included Tridacna, the largest ammonite found in the Americas, measuring over 5 feet.

Half scale painting of Megladon, the largest shark to have hunted prehistoric oceans. The art work was done by Eric Schaffert, pictured with the mural that is on display at the show.
