Shark Attack!
The Hunt

In the ocean waters off the California coast, a wounded seal swims slowly toward shore. It keeps a lookout for danger but sees no sign of predators. Little does the seal know that far off in the distance a shark has detected it and is moving swiftly toward what could soon be its next meal!

hungry shark What the seal doesn't know is that a shark uses its six senses to detect the seal and find its exact location. If you knew how the shark uses these senses, maybe you could do something to save the seal.

I'd like to learn about the shark's six senses.
