Description

Not only are seashores a popular muse for painters, the stretching seashore is also home to millions of creatures, from crabs and sea lions to sea urchins and puffins. Stunning real-life photographs of lobsters, tide pools, fish, seals, seabirds, and more offer a unique "eyewitness" view of life on the seashore. See a starfish on the move, how a sea urchin disguises itself, a sea anemone catch a prawn, the inhabitants of a tide pool, and fish that change color. Learn how a limpet grips the rock, how a crab grows a new leg, how a prawn becomes invisible, how seabirds catch fish, and how a sea otter sleeps at sea. Discover how long seaweed can grow, why hermit crabs live in secondhand shells, which shells bore holes in solid rock, where a puffin lays its eggs, and much, much more.


The most trusted nonfiction series on the market, Eyewitness Books provide an in-depth, comprehensive look at their subjects with a unique integration of words and pictures.
