Exploring arguably the most misunderstood animal on the planet, the jaw-dropping exhibition will turn your fear of sharks into a full-blown love affair by delving into everything from their biology and hunting strategies to their sensory systems and ancient history.

You'll get up close and personal with real teeth and jaws from some of the biggest sharks on Earth, as well as larger-than-life shark models, fossil teeth and cartilage that’s up to 370 million years old. You can also hear the incredible story of Rodney Fox, the brave Australian who pioneered shark cage diving after surviving a shark attack and supervised the live underwater filming for the hit blockbuster Jaws. The exhibition is immersive too, with a 'Gram-worthy underwater projection gallery.

The awe-inspiring exhibition has come to life thanks to WA Museum's dedicated experts. Their one goal? To create a greater understanding of these impressive beasts. Now that’s something we can get around.
