About this book

The wonderful diversity of animals that live in British seas are colourful, beautiful and have an amazing range of intriguing lifestyles. Even those we think of as familiar show surprising ways of getting food, defending themselves, reproducing and interacting with one another. Sea anemones seize their prey with superbly armed tentacles, crabs hide away to shed their armour and grow, starfish pull open mussels and some fish change sex when the situation demands.

Great British Marine Animals uses high quality underwater photographs to both aid identification of a wide range of common animals, and to give an insight into their lives. It is written for anyone who loves the sea, wildlife or exploring our coast.

Over 240 of the 600 photographs in this third edition of Great British Marine Animals are new. They show further aspects of the fascinating behaviour of common animals, and illustrate 30 additional species including several more found in rock pools. The expanded introduction shows a selection of habitats and some of the typical animals that live in them.

About the Author:
Paul Naylor has been snorkelling around the coast of Britain for 30 years. Whether in the muddy shallows of a beach lagoon in Norfolk or in the deep and clear water around the Orkneys, he has always been entranced by the animals that live there. For the last 20 years, Paul has concentrated on photographing these animals in their natural habitat and, wherever possible, showing them getting on with their lives despite his attention. He gives talks to schools, colleges, conservation groups and diving clubs on the wonders of our marine fauna; and writes regularly about marine life for diving magazines and other publications. He has a doctorate in marine biology and is an Associate of the Royal Photographic Society. This is his fourth book.
