Sharks Have Six Senses
John F Waters
In the ocean, sharks are near the top of the food chain. Sharks have the same five senses as humans do, but they have an extra sixth sense that makes them especially deadly hunters. What is this sense and how does a shark use all six senses to track down prey? Read and find out! With colourful illustrations from Bob Barner and engaging text from John F Waters, this book is is a fascinating look into one of the most powerful predators in the sea.
Featuring rich marine-biology vocabulary bolded throughout the text, this book also includes a Find Out More section with additional shark facts and web research prompts about shark conservation efforts. Both the text and the artwork were vetted for accuracy by Dr George H Burgess, director of the Program for Shark Research at the Florida Museum of Natural History.
