Find out about the less familiar but truly fascinating species with their highly distinguishing features – all useful adaptations for survival. They include the very long-nosed goblin shark; the deep sea frilled shark that resembles a sea serpent; the sawshark, so-named for obvious reasons; the Greenland shark that’s full of antifreeze; and the epaulette shark that can walk on land.

Key points

• An ever-appealing subject.
• Dramatic photographs that deliver the ‘wow’ factor.
• Authentic, accessible text full of interesting facts.
• Clearly labelled diagrams and imagery that explain anatomy and behaviour.
• Great resource for school projects.
