More about this book

Perhaps no other sea creature captivates and delights as much as dolphins. They have been intertwined with humans in culture, myth and folklore throughout recorded history. They are highly evolved and social animals, communicating with each other through their own ‘language’ of clicks and whistles, engaging in elaborate courting rituals and playing games of their own invention. Through an entertaining text and outstanding photography, Jonathan Bird gives an insight into the underwater world of these fascinating creatures. He also tells how, though pollution and man’s greed, their very existence is threatened. An absorbing look at the marine mammal that perhaps fascinates humanity more than any other.

More about this book

A colourful look at the history, habits and ecology of these much-feared sea creatures. 

Reviled or feared as man-eaters, sharks are regarded as monsters in many people’s mind. However, the author tells us that this could not be further from the truth. Jonathan Bird assures us that sharks are highly evolved animals just trying to survive and are no more dangerous to people than any large land predator, such as the lion or the bear, and statistically pose almost no threat to people. The beautifully illustrated book goes on to discuss the ecology and survival problems faced by sharks.
