|5 stars based on the 3 most helpful Amazon reviews|
Dan Jacksonabout this book: Sharks can be a scary subject, unless you approach it like in this book. The books starts with some interesting history and moves along to let us know that there are nearly 470 species of sharks ranging in size from a few inches in length to more than 50 feet! We learn about their habitats, their skeletons of cartilage, their senses (smell being the most keen - especially the smell of blood!), the fact that they see in color and have very special protecting aspects to their eyes, and more.
Than we look into the various species of Hammerhead sharks, the qualities of Nurse Sharks, the lifespan of the various sharks, and the 8 orders of sharks - some very fascinating information here. We learn about the `Lateral Line' - the detection of vibrations in water - and the speed at which sharks can travel. Shark pups are born fully functional and self-sufficient! And then comes the scary part - the manner of attack on different prey (yes, including humans!).
