What’s In the Tidepools? – April 2022
You can find videos on the Tidepool Videos page.
Brittle stars are normally spotted underneath rocks or in dark places where they like to hide. They are generally numerous in population, and large amounts can be found in deeper waters off the La Jolla coast.
A baby octopus has been living in the “bathtub” near the entrance for quite some time now. It’s been interesting to watch it grow over the months.
Black sea hares are normally larger and less common than their California relatives. Unlike other related species, it cannot produce ink.
A major bluff collapse occurred this month at Zone 2. This is still a dangerous area especially with the corrugated pipe more exposed. Please try to keep visitors away from this area.
A smaller bluff collapse occurred at the bottom of the Spur trail. Just a reminder that all the bluffs are fragile and sections can collapse at any time. Be watchful.
