Great British Marine Animals Paperback / softback
by Paul Naylor
The wonderful diversity of animals that live in British seas are colourful, beautiful and have an amazing range of intriguing lifestyles.
Even those we think of as familiar show surprising ways of getting food, defending themselves, reproducing and interacting with one another.
Sea anemones seize their prey with superbly armed tentacles, crabs hide away to shed their armour and grow, starfish pull open mussels and some fish change sex when the situation demands.Great British Marine Animals uses high quality underwater photographs to both aid identification of a wide range of common animals, and to give an insight into their lives.
It is written for anyone who loves the sea, wildlife or exploring our coast.Over 240 of the 600 photographs in this third edition of Great British Marine Animals are new.
They show further aspects of the fascinating behaviour of common animals, and illustrate 30 additional species including several more found in rock pools.
The expanded introduction shows a selection of habitats and some of the typical animals that live in them.
