In honor of Shark Week, we’ve compiled a few free, downloadable, and scientifically accurate 3D shark models from Sketchfab.
Ever wonder what an ancient shark tooth looks like? Well, to be honest, most shark teeth that wash up on the beach are fossilized, and already millions of years old. Igor Denisov, however, modeled a shark tooth that was found in archeological remains from 5-6 centuries BC. This find gives archeologist a special glimpse into how ancient civilizations used shark teeth.
Seeing these jaw models side by side is a killer way to learn how these sharks differ. Do you notice any differences in their jaw anatomy?
Think about what these sharks might eat based on differences you see…
If you’re looking for a bit more action, take a bite of this incredible Caribbean Reef Shark. This realistic model was created using video footage captured by OceanX and Cape Eleuthera Institute as reference. Robert Gutierrez, combined real footage with data to recreate this scientifically accurate model. Don’t worry, despite its accuracy, this shark is unlikely to come swimming out of your computer screen.
