UPDATE: CBS Miami has posted a video of the C. Megalodon going for a ride.
According to Florida’s Local10.com, a “life-size” C. megalodon replica was seen traveling south on Interstate 95 in Florida this morning. The enormous replica was being transported on the back of flat-bed trailer on its way to the Fort Lauderdale Museum of Science and Discovery. The replica body was missing its fins and tail region (fear not, it was not the victim of finning) and created somewhat of a spectacle while traveling down the road.
The shark replica will be on display as part of the Prehistoric Florida exhibit in the museum’s EcoDiscovery Center. The exhibit is scheduled to open in mid-November.
