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.Coral reefs are made out of very hard limestone deposits. It is surprising that so many fish and other kinds of sea life have adapted to feed on the tiny polyps that both produce and are protected by the reefs. Some fish can actually grind coral reefs to sand. Other animals scrape along the reef's surface, pulling polyps from the coral pockets. These and many other unusual feeding strategies are presented in this fascinating book.
