The American Museum of Natural History’s new exhibition, “Sharks,” opening on December 15, brings to life the history of both prehistoric and modern species of sharks with dozens of life-sized models, touch-free interactive sections and dynamic media presentations. Member previews are available from December 10-12
Visitors to the exhibit will get to explore the anatomy, diversity, and behavior of sharks and their relatives through encounters with tiger sharks, great whites, and other familiar favorites along with little-known animals such as the torpedo ray, the longnose chimaera, and the tiny dwarf lanternshark, which glows in the dark and is small enough to hold in your hand. The exhibit also demonstrates that while sharks pose few threats to people, we represent a serious danger to their future on the planet.
