"The Whorl Tooth Sharks of Idaho" opened on June 22 and runs through the end of the year. 

'The exhibit features a wide array of fossils of the 270-million-year-old shark called Helicoprion, along with original artworks by Alaskan artist Ray Troll, life-sized sculptures of the shark bursting through the museum walls by sculptor Gary Staab, original music, a short documentary and much more. There are children’s activities too, so it promises to be fun for the whole family.  The exhibit is a unique combination of science, art, music and humor.’ 

More information and pictures at Ray Troll’s webpage and Idaho Museum of Natural History
