Over 350 million years, sharks have evolved into the most successful hunters to roam the seas. This educational and entertaining coloring book focuses on 25 species of shark, ranging in size from the relatively tiny cookiecutter shark (1-1/2 feet long) to the monstrous whale shark (up to 65 feet).Carefully researched and skillfully rendered line drawings depict such fascinating species as the snakelike frilled shark; the thresher shark with its long, scythe-shaped tail; the rare and bizarre goblin shark; the dreaded great white shark, one of the most fearsome predators in the sea, and the swift and graceful blue shark. Also depicted are some of the shark's closest relatives: the spotted ratfish, sting ray, common skate, Atlantic torpedo ray, Atlantic guitarfish and smalltooth sawfish.A fact-filled caption accompanies each of Llyn Hunter's vivid illustrations, providing the sharks' common and scientific names, habitat, behavior, size, color, distinguishing features and other information. Further enhancing the book are a general introduction and a dramatic double-page illustration showing all 25 sharks drawn to scale. Educational and informative, Sharks of the World Coloring Book doubles as an excellent and inexpensive source of royalty-free illustrations for artists and designers.
