Sharks offers an extensive look at the notorious predators of the deep, providing insights on shark behavior, habitats, and the surprising variety of species that inhabit our oceans. In addition to breathtaking underwater photography, full-action computer-generated artwork brings to life the long-extinct Megalodon as it preys on a prehistoric whale, and captures the moment that a lemon shark gives birth in shallow waters.
