Product description

From the Back Cover

‘The water boiled up furiously around him and he swam rapidly for the bank, leaving a reddish wake behind him. Almost immediately afterwards his brother screamed and disappeared beneath the surface.’

The Jaws of Death tells teh extraordinary truth about sharks and -- through real and graphically illustrated case histories -- about shark attacks on man. Biggest of all fish and the best equipped for hunting, sharks are found in every ocean and threatened by no natural predator except the Killer Whale. Built like torpedoes, their powerful jaws and teeth are unrivalled in the animal kinghdom. The shark has an impressive ability to stay alive: shot, harpooned, ripped ope, they are still capable of thrashing about and tearing apart their victims. ANd they have existed unchanged for 350 million years.

Through the stories of shark attack victims and heroic rescues, Xavier Maniguet dispels the myths about these magnificent predators. Containing an illustrated section on the 31 species likely to attack man, and where they are found, The Jaws of Death offers a fascinating insight into shark biology, behaviour and attack, and why man must learn to adapt to the shark.
