For most people, seasickness is the most unpleasant thing they
experience at sea. However, beneath the surface is a whole other world,
and a lot of it could turn all but the strongest stomachs.


When attacked, the hagfish (also known as the slime eel) ties
itself in a knot that travels the length of its body, squeezing out
mucus by the bucketful and making it impossible for a predator to keep
hold.
To eat, a starfish regurgitates its stomach, digests its food then
swallows its stomach back down again. Pearlfish stick close to sea cucumbers, whose bowels they swim
into when danger’s near. And with shark attacks and jellyfish
encounters, the oceans take on another level of repulsiveness when man
dips his toes in the water.



The underwater world remains a frontier we know even less about than
space. Some of the species covered in this book are beyond the
imaginations of science fiction writers. Entertaining yet informative,
the idea is not to wallow in grossness with the
intention of putting people off their dinner, but to explore just how
fascinating and 'alien’ our own world can be.



Highly illustrated, and with stories and anecdotes that help bring a
human perspective, this book demystifies the natural world beneath the
waves, and shows how it’s not quite so shocking when you understand why
these creatures have evolved the way they have.
