If one shark week per year isn’t enough for you, the Museum of Nature and Science has you covered. Replicas and specimens of prehistoric sharks and fossils dating back millions of years will be on display alongside explanations and examinations of almost every aspect of the shark until September 16, 2012.
Planet Shark is a fun way for kids, and adults, to learn all about sharks from the basic facts and historical data to attack statistics and stories from real-life survivors. Full-scale models will be on display, including an 18-foot Great White, and every Saturday a shark dissection will be featured.
An added bonus; print out the free, educational activity booklets good for children of all ages. This is another excellent way to learn about different species of shark and to get a head start on the exhibit.
While planning your visit online, check out the guest speaker and demo schedules, and when upcoming live feedings will be held. Ticket prices and group rates can be found on the event website. Take advantage of this traveling shark exhibit while it’s in Dallas, and see for yourself why one of nature’s most feared creatures is also one of the most misunderstood.
