The Shark That Walks on Land: And Other Strange But True Tales of Mysterious Sea Creatures

We rated this book:

We call space the Final Frontier, but that does the ocean a great disservice. Right here on Earth we have a source of seemingly endless mysteries and wonders, full of creatures both baffling and mind-blowing. From crabs that can crack coconuts to whales that went onto the land and then returned to the sea, from glow-in-the-dark denizens of the deep to sharks that gave Great Whites their bad name, the oceans hide a multitude of amazing beings, and many of them are catalogued in The Shark That Walks on Land.

A collection of curiosities, anecdotes, and factoids, this book is an impressive glimpse into the unimaginable variety of creatures that call the oceans home and the many ridiculous and fascinating facts we’ve culled from our studies of them over the years.

I did find it odd that the book spent several chapters on whether the Biblical story of Jonah and the whale could’ve actually happened—which, while a fun diversion, felt like unnecessary padding—but for the most part, The Shark That Walks on Land is perfect for trivia buffs, animal lovers, and anyone who enjoys learning about the weird and wonderful world around us.
