Director’s intertidal zone

by

It was a sunny but windy afternoon yesterday in the intertidal zone with D block.  We saw a few things of note…

Ehsan taking note

Ivan taking note

At least Ehsan & Ivan were taking note!

Parastichopus

A dead California sea cucumber (Parastichopus californicus).  Very curious about the circumstances surrounding its arrival in the intertidal zone.

Green eggs

And we saw lots of eggs – several yellow whelk egg capsules and green fish eggs wedged into a crack in the rock.

Steph & hermits

We also collected some hairy hermit crabs for Tom’s extended essay work on shell selection in hermit crabs.
