What prehistoric creature was the most ferocious of all time? Was it Megalodon, the largest shark that ever lived, or the giant carnivores of the Cretaceous like T-REX and Giganotosaurus? We will compare prehistoric species to their modern day counterparts, as well as other animals that make their home at the Science Spectrum. Explore how they lived, and what ultimately caused their extinction. Also, tour the new exhibit Megalodon: Largest Shark that Ever Lived and watch Dinosaurs of Antarctica in the OMNI Theater.

MessFest
