The Tethys Ocean Project is pleased to present a new fossil exhibit "SHARKS". The ever-popular 5-1/2 foot Megalodon jaws can be compared to the one of the largest Great White Shark jaws to date. Five other menacing shark jaws and numerous teeth are included in the show. There will be a 10 foot Great White shark cast and an 8 foot Hammerhead shark cast. Note: no modern sharks were killed for the exhibit.
One of the most ancient shark jaws is from the Permian. These tiny teeth are 250 million years old. The Whirltooth shark had bizarre teeth. Free souvenir shark teeth from 50 million years ago will be given to the first 2,000 children in attendance.
Three generations of 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 Tethys Ocean Project Exhibits exclusively with The Mother Lode Mineral Society for 14 years.
