This book offers a fascinating and exciting investigation into the most powerful predator of the oceans: the shark. Find out about how sharks work, their different shapes and sizes, their teeth, senses and behaviour patterns, how they feed, hunt and breed. It is packed with over 200 stunning colour photographs from renowned wildlife photographers. Detailed cross-sections and diagrams reveal the complex inner workings of a shark's body. It is a lively and accessible reference, ideal for home and school use for 8 to 12 year-olds. "Nature Watch: Sharks" investigates the lives of the oceans' most extraordinary predators and powerful swimmers. Sharks are some of the most intriguing creatures in the sea, and here you will find out all about their infinite variety, basic instincts and survival skills. Discover how hammerheads detect their prey and how the weird-looking wobbegong becomes invisible. Compare the awesome jaws of the great white with the filter-feeding habits of the whale shark, largest fish in the sea. Dramatic photographs show sharks in action and colour illustrations reveal the complex inner workings of a shark's body. Focus features zoom in on particular aspects of shark lifestyles. Myth boxes explore legends and stories about sharks from around the world, and Did You Know? highlights present some extraordinary but true facts.
