Great Sharky Shark: A Tale of a Big Hunter Suzanne Tate says, "From the beginning book of my Nature Series, I have enjoyed educating adults as well as children. In preparing Great Sharky Shark, I have become educated also, learning many fascinating facts. Sharks are especially well-equipped to be successful predators. They have great sensitivity to electrical vibrations. Special receptors called the ampullae of Lorenzini on the head and snout allow sharks to detect the faintest vibration or electrical volt coming from prey some distance away. In addition, sharks have an extremely keen sense of smell that can guide them to a meal. Sharks have no external ears but can detect sounds up to a mile away. Their vision is poor, but their pupils open and close slowly in response to different amounts of light... I have written in this book about a white shark, popularly known as a 'Great White,' which is capable of devouring any creature in the sea. But in Great Sharky Shark, you will read about one of these big hunters of the deep that almost becomes a meal himself!
