Take a trip to the National Museum of Natural History in Washington, D.C. and you will come face to face with a life-size replica of a megalodon. At 52 feet, the model is the average size of a female megalodon. In order to show the large teeth, the model is displayed with its mouth open. The megalodon was a new addition to the West courtyard of the museum in Spring 2019.
