“TIME Home Entertainment, Inc has teamed up with Discovery Channel to create Sharkopedia: The Complete Guide to Everything Shark—a book full of captivating photos and the coolest facts about the world’s most astonishing and feared creatures.


The book also includes an introduction and special contributions from shark expert and marine biologist Andy Dehart, a regular contributor to Discovery’s popular week-long TV event, Shark Week.


This 192 page full-color book includes over 400 vivid photos and offers a wealth of information about the nearly 500 species of sharks. Sharkopedia is the ultimate comprehensive resource for shark fans of all ages and explains everything there is to know about these amazing underwater predators.  Its chapters dive into areas such as:

  • Shark Anatomy and Senses –Explore shark parts, skin, muscles, fins, gills, hearing, taste and touch.
  • Feeding Habits – What’s the name of the shark that takes small, cookie shaped bites out of its prey?
  • Record Breakers – Which shark can live over 200 years?
  • Shark Behavior – Do sharks sleep?
  • Shark Conservation – Rather than being afraid of sharks, people should be afraid for sharks, as their populations are seriously threatened. Scientists, legislators and advocates—people who love sharks—are working to protect sharks in many ways.



In addition, Sharkopedia is filled with information about some of the most infamous sharks, including the Great White, Bull and Tiger. Learn about the two fastest-swimming sharks, how some sharks get their teeth cleaned, and why tiger sharks are known as “garbage guts.”


Readers will get a close-up look at what makes sharks the most fearsome hunters in the ocean, read about the Great White “Ring of Death,” and much more.”


“New advances in technology have allowed scientists to learn a great deal about sharks and one thing is abundantly clear – sharks are not the mindless monsters of the deep that many thought them to be,” said Dehart. “Whether you are fascinated or frightened by sharks, Sharkopedia showcases these amazing animals and allows us to captivate audiences year round outside of the water.”


The Verdict

My kids & I have been having an awesome time checking this book out. It has such an abundance of information that it’s going to keep us busy for months. There is information on: Shark anatomy, shark orders, different types of sharks & their traits, their teeth, their social network.. any question you have about sharks can probably be answered with this book.  Every page is filled with amazing photographs of these creatures. Some of them seem as though they could jump right out of the pages.


To put it shortly, this is the kind of book that if you read it as a kid you’d remember it your entire life. It’s that cool.
