Hawai'i's Sea Creatures: A Guide to Hawai'i's Marine Invertebrates


By John Hoover.

Noted diver, animal lover, and best-selling author of "Hawaii’s Fishes", John Hoover presents a detailed exploration of Hawai‘i’s invertebrates. The reader is led deep 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 Hawai‘i’s snorkelers, divers and beachgoers are here. Also provided are 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.
