Dragons of the Deep
Each sea creature in this book is featured with full-color illustrations, size comparisons, skeleton drawings, a fast facts section, and fascinating information about how these creatures lived and died. The Bible describes a frightening, huge creature that lived in the sea. Called Leviathan, it had fearsome teeth and armor-plated scales that spears and arrows could not penetrate. A Norse legend tells of a colossal sea creature with many arms that could capsize a sailing ship. As researchers discover teeth and bones from the past, these stories and many like them are no longer easily dismissed as tall tales. The fossil evidence shows that the oceans once teemed with sea monsters, and some are still alive today!
