About this book

Language: Japanese with English, Japanese and scientific nomenclature

Sharks have long been thought of as horrible creatures. But rather than "ferocious creatures that attack people", typified by the great white shark, increasingly public perception is shifting to them being mild creatures, as typified by whale sharks and basking sharks. In particular the whale shark is beautiful in its form, and the fact that it will swim with humans makes it very popular with divers. This book will introduce the charm of different sharks.

Summary in Japanese:
古くは映画「ジョーズ」など、海の恐ろしい生物として認知されてきたサメ。
ですが近年はホホジロザメなどに代表される「人を襲う獰猛な生き物」という取り上げられ方よりも、
ジンベエザメやウバザメなどに代表されるように「温和なサメ」といった形で取り上げられることが増えています。
とくにジンベエザメはそのフォルムの美しさや、人間を怖がらず寄り添って泳いでくれることから、ダイバーたちにも非常に人気です。
そこで世界中に存在するサメのなかから、人気度・希少度を基準にピックアップ。
美麗な写真で凶暴なイメージとは異なるサメの魅力を紹介します。
