A favorite of many in the Woodson is our shark model. Based on the plaque, it was sold by The General Biological Supply House in Chicago. It’s part of the series Jewell Models for Biology, which were made by Turtox Products. For those more interested in Turtox, the company did have a newsletter, entitled Turtox News in the 1950s.
Here are some more images of the vicious shark in all its glory.
I would like to think it originally lived in one of the cabinets below with the other impressive models and skulls. If you ever used him for research, please tell us your story.
