Welcome to a Caribbean coral reef! As you snorkel just offshore, you see brilliant fish, waving sea anemones, diving turtles - maybe even a prowling barracuda! The coral reef is full of life - from coral polyps snagging plankton to a moray eel gobbling up a goby fish. Day and night on the coral reef, the hunt is on to find food - and to avoid becoming someone else’s next meal. All living things are connected to one another in a food chain, from animal to animal, animal to plant, and plant to animal. What path will you take to follow the food chain through the coral reef? Will you . . . Tail a tiger shark as it sniffs out its next victim? Check out a stingray crushing clams? Watch a feathery fan worm trap bits of leftovers? Follow all three chains and many more on this who-eats-what adventure!
