Synopsis: Hawaii's seas teem with life. Living creatures-swimming, creeping, floating or crawling--have invaded every possible undersea habitat. They have multiplied and diversified into every imaginable shape and form, from 20-foot giant squids to tiny creatures living between sand grains. Ninety percent of these animals are invertebrates--animals without backbones. Many are beautiful, a few are bizarre, and all are fascinating.

This book leads the reader deeper into the undersea realm with photographs of over 500 species of lobsters, shrimps, crabs, shells, octopus, corals, anemones, urchins, stars, sponges, slugs and a host of other lesser-known creatures. Virtually all the animals encountered by snorkelers, divers and beachgoers in Hawaii are here. Hoover provides scientific, common and Hawaiian names for each animal and a wealth of information on its natural history, ecology, cultural importance and even suitability for aquariums.

From the Back Cover: Hawaii's seas teem with life. Living creatures--swimming, creeping, floating or crawling--have invaded every possible undersea habitat. They have multiplied and diversified into every imaginable shape and form, from 20-foot giant squids to tiny creatures living between sand grains. Ninety percent of these animals are invertebrates-- animals without backbones. Many are beautiful, a few are bizarre, all are fascinating.

This book, a sequel to the John Hoover's best-selling guide Hawai`i's Fishes, leads the reader deeper into the undersea realm with 660 underwater photographs of over 500 species of lobsters, shrimps, crabs, shells, octopus, corals, anemones, urchins, stars, sponges, slugs and a host of other lesser-known creatures. Virtually all the animals encountered by snorkelers, divers and beachgoers in Hawai`i are here. Hoover provides scientific, common and Hawaiian names for each animal, as well as a wealth of information on its natural history, ecology, cultural importance, and even suitability for aquariums.

Every person who visits the sea, whether diver, snorkeler, wader or beachgoer, eventually encounters an unrecognized creature--a beautiful shrimp, an exquisite shell, something covered with spines, a puzzling slug or worm. The question "What is that?" always arises. This book gives the answer with style.
