Our Contribution to Shark Week 2022: A Natural History of Sharks

June 20, 2022
Shark week is coming; we can sense it from a quarter-mile away! 

Rextooth Studios is happy to announce our contribution to Shark Week, one of our favorite broadcast events. Our team has created a graphic novel that educates readers on the natural history of sharks. 

Sharks, like alligators, are a constant in the earth's aquatic ecosystems. These prehistoric predators have been swimming in the sea for nearly 400 million years—way before the dinosaurs.

To Rextooth Studios, sharks are one of the most remarkable animals around.

Sharks: A 400 Million Year Journey

This graphic novel and children's book walks readers through the incredible natural history of sharks. That includes their evolution through the millennia, how they survived around the mega-predators that surrounded them in the age of the dinosaurs, all the way up to their current incarnation—from great whites to whale sharks. 

You can find 'Sharks: A 400 Million Year Journey' in resorts, zoos, national parks, museums, zoos, and bookstores across the US or on our website. We also offer buttons, puzzles, tees and other shark-related merchandise to meet any of your other shark related needs!
