Great White Shark jaw 3D Model
This is a laser scan of a Great White Shark jaw which was originally reported as coming from an 11 metre-long (36 feet) shark, though subsequent analysis by the Museum estimates it at about 7.5 metres (25 feet) – still a very large fish! The specimen demonstrates the incredible rows of spare teeth that Great Whites have lined up inside their jaw. If a tooth is lost the next one in line just folds up to take its place. The specimen was used for public engagement for many years and has suffered as a result. This is a preliminary scan and we will be rescanning it with the aim of 3D printing a high quality replica for outreach.
