The Leporello Book: The Deep Sea – the Mysteries of Marine Life

From the shallow seas with their aquatic plants and their shoals of fish, the five-foot high fold-out poster that comes with the book takes us to the deep-sea basins and their bizarre creatures, and finally on to the deepest abysses of the earth, the deep-sea grabens.

It’s dark and cold in the immense expanses of the deep sea, a part of our planet whose exploration has only just begun. And yet there is life even here – strange fish, giant octopuses and all kinds of crustaceans. The creatures of the deep sea feed on the dead remains of animals that sink down from the higher strata of the sea, on the kind of micro-organisms that teem around the hot sulphur springs, the „black smokers“, or on those tiny animals that have settled on the frozen methane along the slopes of the continental shelf. They are equipped with luminous bodies so they can find their likes in the dark, but which they can also switch off in order to escape those predators that are also active in the deep. A world that is bizarre and fascinating, but also a little scary!
