Sharks -- Predators of the Sea

A spectacular collection of the fiercest, weirdest, and most extraordinary sharks.

Sharks: Predators of the Sea reveals the true nature of these remarkable prehistoric creatures. As an apex predator in their watery world, they are critical to the health of the world's oceans but also largely misunderstood. This book is the perfect choice to engage readers and shed light on this important marine animal.

The book is packed with 200 full color photographs plus sidebars, fact files, and illustrations. Chapters of accessible text describe the natural history of 17 of the world's 450 species of sharks along with some shark relatives. Special features on shark biology describe the physical characteristics that make them so remarkable.

Sharks: Predators of the Sea covers these 17 shark species: Great White, Great Hammerhead, Bull, Mako, Blue, Thresher, Tiger, Lemon Shark, Goblin, Wobbegong, Dwarf Lanternshark, Cookie-cutter, Greenland, Whale, Megamouth, Frilled, and Reef, plus a few shark relatives, the Manta Ray, Stingray, Electric Ray, and Sawfish.
