Deep Sea Life

Deep Sea Life

by Jinny Johnson

Hardcover(Library Binding)



Almost three-quarters of our planet is covered by water, and these watery worlds are home to an amazing variety of plant and animal life.

Sunlight reaches only about 655 ft (200 m) below the surface of the sea. Below that, the light fades until there is total darkness. Despite the darkness, here we find the homes of some extraordinary creatures, including fish that create their own light and seabed animals that look like feathery plants.

With vivid photographs and clear text, Deep Sea Life is a fascinating introduction to this little-known environment.
