Animals of the Rocky Shores is written by marine biologists Judy and Bruce Mann and beautifully designed by Di Martin. The writing is easy to understand, with hundreds of photographs that make the text come alive. The photos are taken in the ﬁeld, making identiﬁcation of the many animals so much easier. The book is small enough to slip into your pocket or beach bag.
The ﬁrst part describes the environment, with tips on when and how to explore this area. The second part of the book is devoted to the identiﬁcation of over 140 of the animals found living in the rocky shore environment of the East coast of South Africa. The species have been carefully selected to ensure that almost all of the common animals have been included.
