More about this book - Sharks
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.
