The Ocean Realm is part of Sea and Sky, an award-winning, nonprofit website created by J.D. Knight, an Orlando-based Web designer, amateur astronomer, and marine aquarium hobbyist. The Ocean Realm offers two features: Reef Life, a presentation of animals who inhabit corral reefs; and Monsters of the Deep, an exploration of animals found in deep zones of the ocean. Reef Life contains gorgeous photographs; and basic information about a variety of sponges, corals, echinoderms, mollusks, sharks, and more. Monsters of the Deep contains profiles for a collection of fascinating creatures including the sizeable sixgill shark, the tiny vampire squid, the large-mouthed gulper eel, and the fierce viperfish to name but a few. The site also provides straightforward descriptions of ocean layers, deep sea bioluminescence, and hydrothermal vents.
