Paperback:

9780691113081 | Princeton Univ Pr, January 20, 2003, cover price $30.95 | About this edition: Looks at the features of the fifty-one species of marine mammals found in the North Atlantic.

Biggest of all fish and the best equipped for hunting, sharks live in every ocean.  No natural predator except the killer whale threatens them, and they possess an extraordinary physiology…including those unrivaled jaws. They have become the stuff of movies, books, and nightmares, but some of what we commonly believe is fiction, not fact.  Through the examination of case histories, including gruesome attacks on man, The Jaws of Death documents the truth. It discusses why sharks are essential to the equilibrium of the marine biotope and what benefit they have provided to science and medicine.  In addition to sharks, other “jaws of death” receive attention, including piranhas, crocodiles, and barracudas.
