Giants of the Sea: A Portrait of the Animal World
80 illustrations. Known as monsters of the deep, the large creatures of the ocean depths have fascinated and terrified humans for thousands of years. The breaching humpback whale, the deadly great white shark, the poisonous giant jellyfish, and the fierce barracuda are just a few of the amazing deep water forms shown in this vividly illustrated volume. These colossal sea animals are brought to life with 80 full-color photographs along with other marine inhabitants such as the giant clam, the bizarre ocean sunfish, the tentacled giant squid, and the intimidating manta ray. These unique forms and their prey demonstrate the variety and complexity of life beneath the sea.
