Recently TPERP Romi had an exciting time in the tidepools. She tells her Seahare story in her own words.
When I was just about to give up finding any interesting sea life to show to our visitors, I found a patch of Seahare eggs. Then a foot from that, I found 3 big fat Seahares, 2 of them hugging. Closer look, one of them was extracting a new batch of eggs!!!
When you look close where two seahares are, you’ll see a few strands of eggs that were extracted.
I saw the patch of eggs first, then close to that, found over wrapping 2 seahares & one of them was extracting eggs.
There were 3 seahares when I first spotted them, two black ones on right & one with spots on the left side of them.
Of course I showed them to high school kids who were nearby & so on.
I’ve seen eggs before, but never the actual delivery of eggs. It came out like a pasta maker!
