Planet Shark is a fascinating journey into the world of the shark. It is a story of evolution, of form and function and of the significance of the shark in our world.
Planet Shark guides visitors through the murky myths and fascinating facts which have surrounded sharks for centuries. Featuring explanations and examinations of almost every aspect of the shark, from evolution and biology to popular culture and the fin trade, visitors will gain a whole new level of respect for the ocean’s oldest and most effective predator.
In this creative and engaging exhibition, visitors will find displays of full-scale specimen models, the king of which is the record-setting, 5 metre Great White. Also on display are rows upon rows of fossils, real teeth and jaws and a first-hand glimpse of artifacts from the 1975 edition of Jaws. Also featured are interviews with shark attack survivors.
