Forty years ago this week the blockbuster film Jaws was released.  None of us stepped into the sea in the same way ever again!  The Great White Shark and its relationship to ancient sharks from the time of the dinosaurs divides opinion between scientists.  Whether Jaws is most closely related to the Megalodon or a broad toothed Mako or some other species will continue to be debated for some time yet.  They all have one thing in common however….those teeth!

Three teeth, one belonging to a Megalodon and two from a great white shark.  There is a ruler showing the first tooth to be 13.5 cms and the other at 3cms

Megalodon tooth with two great white shark teeth.

Get up close and personal with sharks teeth and other exciting fossil remains with a Mrs History Dinosaurs session.
