The dustjackets of these books were identical to the covers, with the only exception being the price, which was only shown on the jacket. The first eighty titles from Penguin Books were printed with The Bodley Head publisher’s name on the covers, until Penguin separated and…

    Each gill arch is lined with filaments which are always submerged in water so they are always kept moist.

    use for balance and to steer through the water. Description of gas exchange: As fish live in water their gas exchange system is somewhat different to that of terrestrial animals. They use fragile gills. It is a lot harder to obtain enough oxygen from the water as the concentration is so low, only about 4% and the fish are only able to extract 80% of this.
