This list of questions about sharks could go on, and on, and on, and now there’s one place to find all the answers: “Sharks: The Animal Answers Guide.”

Written by Gene Helfman and George H. Burgess and published by Johns Hopkins University Press, this answer guide explores “every conceivable question about sharks,” from biology and behavior, to the cultural importance of sharks.

The new book provides readers with all they need to know about sharks, which play a vital role in healthy ecosystems.

The more we know, the more we will be able to do to protect them.
