HOW SHARKS HUNT

01 How Sharks Hunt UK pb cov v2.jpg

description

Discover how their highly tuned senses enable sharks to smell from hundreds of metres away, detect vibrations in the water, see in low light, use their teeth to test if something is food (or not), and feel the tiny electrical pulse of a fish’s heartbeat. They also use speed and camouflage to capture prey. Some eat almost anything, from ocean-dwelling protein to car registration plates.
