to each other and camouflage and toxins to discourage predators. Many
have cool body adaptations that help them find food and take care of
Meet sea dragons and flatfish that use camouflage to hide from
predators. Learn about archerfish that can knock land insects into the
water with streams of spit, and anglerfish that grow glow-in-the-dark
fishing lines from their heads to lure prey. Laugh at toadfish that make
grunting and whistling sounds to attract mates and remora fish with
suction cups on their fins that help them stick onto sharks and turtles.
Read about fish parents such as cichlids that feed their young with
mucus secreted onto their scales and cardinal fish that protect their
eggs in their mouths.
Under the sea, a whole world of wonder exists that will fascinate the
inquisitive mind of every child. Fish Tricks includes a glossary, an
index, and fun learn-more adventures.
