HUNGRY SHARKS

The attention here is on food: what sharks eat (almost anything) and especially how they find it -- mostly by smell (tracking an injured fish by the scent of its blood) or by ""distance touch,"" a special sense for feeling sound vibrations that is lodged in fluid-filled tubes that make up a ""lateral line system"" along the side of his body. Hearing, sight and feel are used to a lesser extent, and possibly other senses, including one that detects very weak electrical currents, are employed. This is narrowly focused like others in the series, but to read it is indeed to find out something new about the shark.
