Hookjaw's deadly quest - rooted in reality?

White Sharks by Dirk Schmidt
There are few species that strike such fear into humans as the Great White shark as any fan of Hookjaw, which features in STRIP Magazine knows.

And yet this fearsome predator is also greatly threatened by human activity. Moreover, its seemingly random attacks can be shown to follow quite definite and understandable patterns of behaviour.

Based on years of observing and studying Great Whites, White Sharks, a recently-released book by Dirk Schmidt, is a fascinating original contribution towards understanding the behaviour and habits of this much-feared and greatly misunderstood species (not helped by Hookjaw's fictional antics, we're sure!)

Illustrated throughout with magnificent images of White sharks, often in spectacular aerial breaches, this book is essential reading for anyone who is concerned about the health of our marine environment and understanding White shark behaviour. The book is available now from all good bookshops. ISBN: 9781920289508 Price: £28.99
