Megalodon : Hunting the Hunter
by Mark Renz




Overview -
(Black and white edition). How does a shark grow to 60 feet in length? Why would it need to? Which sharks were its ancestors? What could possibly bring about its extinction? Or is this beast still out there in the vastness of our deepest seas, feeding on whales and giant squids? Mark Renz is the author of "Fossiling In Florida" (University Press of Florida), "Giants in the Storm" (PaleoPress), "Desert Sharks" (PaleoPress), and several books of nature photography and prose. From the Forewords and Introductions: "...The ultimate terror of the waters, sixty feet long, and just as predaceous in its behavior as the modern great white shark, was good old C. megalodon. Now, Mark Renz, who writes so well about Florida fossils, has given it its proper due. I hope you, the reader, enjoy this account as much as I have." --S. David Webb, Distinguished Research Curator of Fossil Vertebrates, Florida Museum of Natural History, University of Florida, Gainesville, Florida. "Forget T-rex and the rest of his dino-pals. If you want to read about the number one monster of all time, read this book." --Steve Alten, novelist, "Meg" and "The Trench", and writer for Warner Bros. movie, "The Meg". "...It is unusually refreshing to have a combination of total fantasy and scientific accuracy. Mark Renz has a compulsive style of writing and has sought some of the most respected authorities available, to ensure this book is both up to date and scientifically credible. --David J. Ward, fossil shark researcher and co-author of "Fossils" (Eyewitness Handbooks). "In this beautifully illustrated book, Mark Renz has faithfully captured the sense of awe and discovery that accompanies finding and studying megalodon fossils. More importantly, he has been able to condense the arcane discussions of scientists to a manageable level of complexity, while maintaining a sense of wonder at the richness and complexity of the world around us. Bretton W. Kent, author of "Fossil Sharks of the Chesapeake Bay Region," faculty member, College of Life Sciences at the University of Maryland at College Park. "Mark Renz is back with 'Supershark.' And does he have some stories to tell " --Edward Morris, reviewer for "Bookpage" and ForeWord".
