Sharks: Sink Your Teeth In BannerThe Calvert Marine Museum presents, Sharks! Sink Your Teeth In!  We invite you to explore the wonderful world of sharks, rays, and chimaeras – known as cartilaginous fish.  Our newest exhibit focuses on the great diversity of the past and present, as we dive into the marine life in the western Atlantic Ocean.  Of the 130 cartilaginous fish found along the coast of eastern North America today, 54 species have been identified from fossils found along the Calvert Cliffs. Take a closer look at our modern shark jaws and compare them to their ancient relatives that swam here 20 – to 10 million years ago.  These specimens showcase evidence of evolutionary relationships and tell tales of ancient battles between predator and prey! Exhibit included with regular admission.
