Beneath the sea, in the cold, hostile depths of the ocean, amazing creatures live in darkness.
How is life possible there?

How is light created down there?
Why is red the best camouflage color in the deep sea?
Beneath the surface of the ocean lies a mysterious and astounding world that few people ever get to see. This book merges art with the latest scientific research to take readers on a fantastic voyage on the submarine Marine Snow, where they meet blue whales, vampire squid, viper fish, and a giant sea spider. They’ll learn about bioluminescence, Radiolaria, and coral reefs, and discover incredible facts about the marine world. From the smallest plankton magnified by thousands, to the most enormous whale, captured on a single page, the sea’s denizens are recreated with spectacular precision and artistry. The texts bring the ocean to life—whether it describes a transparent jellyfish or the way colors disappear from view as you descend to the ocean floor. A feast for the eye and the mind, this book helps you comprehend a massive, mostly unfamiliar part of our world—one that flourishes with life and beauty.
