Sharks: The Perfect Predators
Demon of the deep? Or an ancient & interesting animal with a key role in the checks & balances of the sea? Sharks, even the most ferocious species, are far from being mindless eating machines. With the help of lively, you-are-there text & 38 mind-boggling photographs, Sharks gives readers young & old a wealth of surprising facts & recent findings. Writer & photographer Howard Hall, long noted for his fine cinematography of sharks & other marine life, has put together a volume that brings action & humor to a favorite topic. Teachers will find this book especially useful because its non-grisly approach explodes myths & brings understanding. Sharks occupy a number of ecological niches within the sea; these are presented in a series of 11 by 17" color photos of uncanny detail. The saddle-stitched format of the Blake books lets pages open out flat, showing photographs to their best advantage. A succinct guide to where sharks can be seen in the wild & in captivity rounds out the book. This volume has especially easy-to-read text & captions. Its sturdy coated cover stands up well to heavy use.
