Description
Dive into the underwater world of the whale shark! This book's large, up-close photographs will impress readers as they learn about the whale shark's size, appearance, and special features, such as its wide, flat head and unique color pattern. A labeled diagram gives readers a full-body view of the world's largest fish! The whale shark's diet, life cycle, and habitat are also introduced, and a colorful map shows where whale sharks live. Readers will also learn about the whale shark's special senses such as its lateral line, and how this gentle filter feeder 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.
