Why are people afraid of sharks? Most sharks are not interested in harming us, and there are only a few species that have ever attacked humans. This book looks at why sharks have this effect on us, and explains why we should protect and care for all sharks. The beautiful full-color illustrations showcase many fascinating sharks, from the spectacular whale shark (the biggest shark in the world) to the tiny pygmy shark, and the colorful and odd-looking woebegone to the mighty mouthed megamouth and the scary-looking great white shark. You'll find out about shark relatives such as stingrays and chimaeras and see the amazing things found in sharks' stomachs. And, as if this wasn't enough, this book gives you handy hints on how to keep a great white shark as a pet
