Megalodon Display

If you think today’s sharks are scary, be glad you weren’t around 2.5 million to 15 million years ago, when a behemoth named Carcharodon megalodon ruled the seas, at our Megalodon Display.

Known only from fossilized teeth and vertebrae, Megalodon was approximately 60 feet long, which is the size of a city bus. Their teeth alone were 7 inches long, our Sand Tiger Sharks teeth are about 1 inch long! One look at the replica Megalodon jaws displayed at Long Island Aquarium 
and you’ll understand that hard as it might be to believe, Megalodon could literally swallow a Great White Shark (Carcharodon carcharias)!
