“Jaw Dropping World of Sharks,” a new exhibition from the New Jersey State Museum, aims to dispel some of the myths and misunderstandings about sharks and their relatives by exploring their biology, fossil record, conservation and cultural significance. On display will be specimens and artifacts from the Museum’s collections that demonstrate the truly jaw-dropping world of sharks. As part of the opening on April 9, Dr. Dana Ehret, the Museum’s Assistant Curator of Natural History and a fossil shark expert, will present a free lecture on the largest shark that has ever lived, Megalodon, at 2 pm in the Museum’s Riverview gallery on the first floor. The exhibition will be on view through January 8, 2023.
