Blue BlenderseBook - 2010
How does the tiger shark sneak up on its prey? These two-toned sharks have dark blue or gray backs that blend in with the dark waters near the ocean floor. They also have white or light-yellow bellies that match the light waters near the oceans surface. This camouflage makes it hard for other animals to see the sharks, whether theyre swimming above or below them. Plus, tiger sharks have stripes on their backs that look like shadows of waves in the water, helping to disguise them even more. These dangerous hunters can hide in plain sight! Packed with fascinating facts and photos that will test childrens detective skills, this book will engage emergent readers as they learn how tiger sharks are adapted for survival. A section of the book highlights other sharks that are camouflaged to blend in with the ocean.
