Sharks, Fish, Eels, Seals, Coral, Crabs, Octopuses and Turtles appear in this companion to Australian Birds,with Chun’s delicate illustrations accompanying a page of information about the animal. Did you know that coral was not a plant? And Green Moray Eels are usually brown? We find out what male fanfin anglerfish do to their female counterparts, which is rather awful, but interesting. All this and more in a useful introduction to sixteen creatures who live in the sea around us.
