You don't have to look for aliens in space, they are already among us: they live their mysterious and by far not completely researched existence in the depths of the seas. Science journalist Heinz Krimmer introduces the world of Cephalopoda – those with tentacles attached to their heads – and takes us along to the habitat of these bizarre beings. He describes behaviour and ecology in a fascinating and entertaining manner, and unveils astonishing facts, for example, why researchers into consciousness are interested in Kraken. A wonderfully designed volume with spectacular photos – as fascinating as an encounter with a Kraken.
