Summary
A visual and comprehensive research manual and guide that will take kids from tropical paradise to the cold, dark depths, in search of the wildest, weirdest, and most wonderful sharks in the ocean, now refreshed with a new look. Kids can go on an around-the-world adventure to track the sea's most extraordinary predators with Sharkpedia, 2nd Edition . From the huge and harmless whale shark to the puny pygmy shark, these fascinating fish come in many shapes and sizes, and this guide will take kids from tropical paradise to the cold, dark depths of the ocean. Who gulps up tiny plankton? Who snatches unsuspecting seals mid-swim? Kids can see for themselves from the portholes of our trusty vessel or, if they dare, from behind the bars of a shark cage. So grab your scuba gear and get on the boat--we've got sharks to find with Sharkpedia, 2nd Edition
Summary
Through hundreds of photos, diagrams, maps, and illustrations, readers will learn where sharks lurk, what they eat, who they hang out with, and why they do what they do, as well as hear from scientists and shark-attack survivors
