"Secret of the Suffocating Slime Trap,..., and More" in which readers tag along with scientists trying to uncover how sea animals do the amazing things they do to survive their hostile environments. The other chapters are: "Fish Fight the Big Freeze (not your usual anti-freeze), "Bubbleheads Never Heard So Well" (some fish rely on bubbles to listen to their surroundings), "Fish Get Hooked on Decorating" (it's true, some fish decorate their nests), and "Eyes on the Stars" (the unusual eye of brittle stars).
Cool fact about the hagfish:They are the only animals known to tie themselves in a knot!
"These books offer fascinating accounts of how scientists systematically analyzed, tested, and proved their theories or how their findings led to other, serendipitous discoveries."
