About this item

Meet the sea's most fascinating creatures - see the lives and curiosities of charmers and tricksters - many newly identified and some on the verge of extinction. From one of the world's premier marine biologists, an award-winning underwater photographer, and a leading expert on seahorses, comes a spectacular guide to hundreds of the ocean's fishes and coral reefs. In this richly informative volume, brimming with new discoveries and more than three hundred colorful images, you'll swim in the Atlantic, Pacific, and Indian Oceans; you'll be dazzled in the Coral Triangle and amazed in Triton Bay. Up close you'll meet the Cenderawasih fairy wrasse, with its florescent yellow streak; the polka-dot longnose filefish; and the multicolored seadragon. There are scarlet-colored corals, baby-blue sponges, daffodil crinoids, and all sorts of mystifying creatures that change color at the drop of a hat.
