Dive into the underwater world of the nurse shark! This book's large, up-close photographs will impress readers as they learn about the nurse shark's size, appearance, and special features, such as its small mouth and dangling barbels. A labeled diagram gives readers a full-body view of this lazy swimmer. The nurse shark's diet, life cycle, and habitat are also introduced, and a colorful map shows where nurse sharks live. Readers will also learn about the nurse shark's special senses such as its lateral line, and how this nighttime hunter uses them to outlast humans and other threats. A facts page, bolded glossary terms, and an index supplement the easy-to-read chapter text. Checkerboard Library is an imprint of ABDO Publishing Company.
