There are about 50 species of flying fish. Like regular fish in most respects, these animals have the unique ability to glide through the air in order to escape predators. This book examines this talent as well as the flying fish's distribution, anatomy, eating behavior, and life cycle.
"Well-written texts clearly convey basic information about the lives and habits of each animal including where it lives, what it eats, and how it reproduces. The chapters are nicely organized with headings and subheadings that provide a good guide to the topics covered. Bright, colorful photos, some full-plate, add much to books' overall appeal. The colorful photos and intriguing texts will attract some browsers and general readers too. Useful additions to natural history collections."
