MetadataShow full item record
The public viewing of Toothless, the rare megamouth shark (Megachasma pelagios), was officially launched on March 3, in time with the celebration of World Wildlife Day. The preserved 15-foot male shark was put on display in the park early last month. Authorities named the creature after a dragon character in “Gift of the Night Fury,” a computer-animated short film by DreamWorks Animation released in 2011.
