Short Description

Known for its whip-like tail and ferocious hunting techniques, the thresher shark is one of the scariest sharks in the sea! Surprisingly, the thresher shark does not hunt with its teeth, but with its amazing tail that is often as long as the shark's entire body. While not aggressive toward humans, thresher sharks herd schools of fish together before attacking multiple fish at one time. In this book, you'll learn about the thresher shark's diet, habitat, and behavior. With links to videos that show you the thresher shark in its natural habitat, you'll be able to experience how these sharks live and hunt. You'll also learn about why the thresher shark population is currently declining and what needs to be done to stop it. Lastly, you'll learn about how you can encounter these amazing animals in the wild—if you dare! Every book in The Amazing World of Sharks is full of fascinating information about where and how sharks live. From the well-known great white shark to the hardly seen goblin shark, this series will take you on a journey deep into the ocean’s depths where you’ll learn about different shark species and how they can be protected.
