These five stamps were released the same week as Discovery Channel's annual "Shark Week" special.  When the stamps were announced, the USPS said, "Possibly no other creatures are mythologized – or as misunderstood – as sharks."

Mythologized and misunderstood, few creatures capture the imagination as sharks do. Emerging long before the first dinosaurs, sharks have masterfully adapted for their ecological and predatory roles within the marine food chain—refinements of 400 million years of evolution. With qualities like teeth replaced without limit and the ability to detect electrical signals given off by prey, the 500+ known shark species are wonders of our oceans’ depths.
