Come along on an around-the-world adventure to track the sea's most extraordinary predators. This research manual and guide will take you from tropical paradise to the cold, dark depths, in search of the wildest, weirdest, and most wonderful beasts in the ocean.

From the harmless and huge whale shark to the puny pygmy shark, these fascinating fish come in many shapes and sizes . . . which means their prey does too. Who gulps down tiny plankton? Who snatches unsuspecting seals midswim? See for yourself from the portholes of our trusty vessel or, if you dare, from behind the bars of a shark cage.

So grab your scuba gear and get on the boat—we've got sharks to find!
