Sharks are deadly predators with incredible natural advantages, from internal ears that detect the distant sounds of a struggling fish to nasal organs that hone in on the electrical fields of their prey. With startling, fact-packed text and spectacular photos, A Frenzy of Sharks reveals this creature's fascinating world. Readers meet graceful blue sharks, lightning-fast makos, burrowing angel sharks, and powerful hammerheads, as well as lesser-known wobbegongs and the ethereal manta rays. Going beyond sharks' thrilling life as hunters, the book captures a less-known of this remarkable animal; images showing them squirming inside egg sacs and effortlessly transporting human passengers reveal sharks a side of sharks rarely seen.
