  • What do fish do in the water? Anyone who's ever dipped a toe in the ocean has wondered what's beneath the waves. Fish Do WHAT in the Water? is the next best thing to a mask and snorkel. Dive in and experience the secret lives of strange sea creatures: a see-through fish, spiny sea cucumbers, fish that hide eggs in their mouths, poison puffer fish, and electric eels. Fish Do WHAT in the Water? exposes these secrets and more—hunting, mating, fighting, and hiding, this book is a tell-all of the fishy mysteries of the ocean’s depths. From the tiny paedocypris to the massive blue whale, swim with sea creatures of all shapes and sizes and discover exactly what fish do in the water.
