World's largest shark jaws up for auction


At Scuttlefish today, an item on the largest set of shark jaws (outside of a living shark, I suppose) going up for auction. All 182 teeth, 11 feet of width, and more than 8 feet in height. "The jaws, which once belonged to a megaladon, will be placed up for bid in Dallas, Texas in June at the Heritage Auction Galleries. The asking price is set at $625,000, but would anywhere shy of The Museum of Natural History have sufficient room to accommodate the jowls?"
