What is the movie about?

The Shark Riddle, the second episode in The Riddle Solvers series, is a half-hour shark film for the whole family - featuring HD footage of over 20 shark species. The movie was crafted as a co-production between Sisbro Studios, LLC and the Save Our Seas Foundation. What is the biggest shark in the ocean, and what do its teeth look like? That is the mysterious riddle that The Riddle Solvers must figure out. Join their adventure through the pages of a magical journal to solve this riddle and meet a raucous group of singing sea lions, experience the underwater game show Are You a Shark?, hear a shark lullaby, go to shark camp and discover the powerful and magnificent world of sharks. This charming and hilarious look at the ocean's top predators has received 'two fins up' from sharks everywhere.

Reasons to Watch This Movie

Sharks (need we say more?). Tiny things. A shark lullaby. A magic journal of shark teeth. Blubber lovers. Approved by 9 out of 10 shark dentists. Singing sea lions. Shark camp. Shenanigans. A misinformed seagull. A whale shark opera. More fun than a movie without sharks.
