Fish

By Clare Hibbert

  • Paperback
  • £8.99

An exciting introduction to the weird world of animals in their natural surroundings.

Fish come in all kinds of shapes, sizes and colours...but why? Some use colours and patterns to camouflage themselves from predators or prey, or to attract a mate. Others lurk in the dark ocean depths and use bioluminescence to lure their prey. From strangely-shaped bat-fish to useful cleaner wrasse fish and the huge sunfish, discover some of the world's strangest fish and learn all about why they are so weird!

Really Weird Animals, six books that take a close up look at some of the oddest animals on Earth. For children aged 7+.
