No place on Earth can match a coral reef, close up, for the brilliant and abundant wildlife that lives there. Colors of the Sea presents all the mesmerizing beauty of this ancient ecosystem in dramatic full-page photographs and accurate, informative text. In this series you'll encounter the marine behavior that fascinates divers: the symbiotic relationships of cleaning species and predators many times their size; the camouflage tactics of hunters from the lethargic scorpion fish to the nimble hawk fishes; the startling and colorful sea slugs; and much, much more. This rare and exciting look into the world of coral reefs will fascinate and inform every reader.

Nature can be a dangerous place, and coral reefs are no exception. The abundance of marine life found near reefs attracts many predators. Survival means avoiding predators, and there are many different and successful strategies for doing so. Some fish are very well camouflaged. Others are fast swimmers that depend on speed. Fish also swim together in schools to present a confusing target to their enemies. These and other remarkable survival strategies are presented in this colorful and interesting book.
