    If you think he was big, get a load of this!  This fellows jaws compared to this great white shark, give new meaning to Chief Brodys famous line in Jaws, "I think we need a bigger boat!" Just thank your lucky stars that the Megladon that these jaws belonged to is extinct, as no one would ever go deep sea fishing in anything smaller than the Titanic!  :omg:

I think that those jaws were just recreations based on best guesses scaled from the size of teeth that have been found. The only thing that has been actually found has been the fossilized teeth, some bigger than the size of your hand and sharp as a razor. The biggest tooth ever found was a little over 7", but then a large shark tooth is about 3"!


Take a look at the Mosasaur if you want big!


It looks like it could use the Titanic as a light snack! (By the way the "Shark" in the painting is a Megladon!

About the NRG

If you enjoy building ship models that are historically accurate as well as beautiful, then The Nautical Research Guild (NRG) is just right for you.

The Guild is a non-profit educational organization whose mission is to provide support to our members in their efforts to raise the quality of their model shipcraft.

The Nautical Research Guild puts on ship modeling seminars, yearly conferences, and juried competitions. We publish books on ship modeling techniques as well as our world-renowned quarterly magazine, The Nautical Research Journal, whose pages are full of articles by master ship modelers who show you how they build those exquisite details on their models, and by maritime historians who show you what details to build.
