Long a family-run mainstay of Biloxi souvenir shop excess, the giant shark mouth was ravaged in Hurricane Katrina, but restored in sturdier form on the front of its pink building in 2012.

Visited Sharkheads in July 22, 2018 to celebrate the 20th Anniversary of Shark Week! Fun place! Lots of photo ops too!

Shark Head

Giant shark head at the entrance to the coolest souvenir shop. It was heavily damaged by Hurricane Katrina in 2005, but it has since rebuilt nicely.

[Dana Miller, 03/16/2015]

A smaller open-mouth shark is strategically placed under the shop's outdoor staircase, possibly to devour carelessly dropped snacks and smart phones.
