As menacing people think this apex predator is, sharks are actually endangered, sad to say. They are an important key to balancing the ocean’s ecosystem.

My Tiger Shark is simply enjoying her life in the bountiful sea.

This my “green” drawing. Happy St. Patty’s Day!

The quick and nimble Plesiosaurus encounters the megashark, Dunkleosteus. Both creatures were deep sea dinosaurs from the prehistoric seas of early Earth. Check out my illustration which is available at my store now.

There can only be one alpha predator. Who do you think will win this battle?

It’s a bummer to be a salmon in a world where everybody loves to eat salmon steak and sushi. It’s even worse when salmon have an apex predator stalking them called a Salmon Shark. This is my sketch of a salmon shark on the prowl. He kinda turned out cute. Almost huggable.

Ahh yes. Summer time is here. It’s that time of year when crowds descend on the beaches for fun in the sun.

Personally, I prefer swimming in lakes, where it is not as crowded and I won’t have to worry about being eaten by a shark. Though, the traffic around the beaches here are even scarier than sharks.
