The Ultimate Guide to Hawaiian Reef Fishes, Sea Turtles, Dolphins, Whales and Seals features more pictures, more stories, and more species than any other softcover field guide. Clear underwater photos and scientifically up-to-date descriptions make it easy and fun to identify 386 Hawaiian reef and shore fishes. The ten whale, dolphin, and turtle species seen most often in Hawaii are included, too. Indispensable for snorkelers, divers, teachers, students, and anyone else interested in the sea, this is the ultimate identification book for Hawaiian marine vertebrate animals.
But there's more. It is also a gold mine of behavioural information, legends, s trivia, and fun facts. Have you ever wondered why spinner dolphins spin? Or how manta rays mate? What does it feel like to be stung by a lionfish or attacked by a shark? Do you know the smartest fish on the reef or why eels tie themselves in knots?
Crammed with stories, picture galleries, sidebars, and 965 full-colour photos, this book takes the concept of a fish identification guide to a whole new level.
