Sharks—for more than 400 million years, these fearsome fishes have been among the ocean’s top predators. In this institute, you will use the Museum’s amazing fossil collection to learn about the strange and fascinating history of these extraordinary creatures. Through a combination of hands-on activities and computer-generated graphics, you will build a detailed knowledge of ancient shark biology, behavior, and environments.
