About this book

Written for all ages and levels of scientific knowledge, "Beyond the Beach Blanket" weaves identification information with natural history in an engaging and informative guide to Southern California's most watchable beach wildlife. This full-color field guide introduces readers to the tremendous world of wildlife that lurks, burrows, and swims throughout Southern California's sandy, salt-spray wilderness. These fascinating creatures - including thirty-year-old clams, slipper snails who start life as males and change to females, and sea cucumbers who expel their intestines to confuse predators - will inspire you to leave your surfboard at home the next time you visit the beach. Includes 235 color photographs, 1 map, appendix, bibliography, and index.
