5: Survival on the Reef
Some creatures carry so much weaponry and armour it's remarkable their predators don' die of starvation. The balance of life on a coral reef is partly the balance of population between predators and prey. Only the very largest fish are safe from being eaten-most reef inhabitants are someone else's dinner. ROLAND VON HENTIG continues his exploration of the reefs of Comoro in the Indian Ocean.
