What’s In the Tidepools? – May 2022
You can find videos on the Tidepool Videos page.
TPERP Michelle discovered a young California Sea Hare in Zone 1. A big plus was a guest who pulled out her water colors to do a quick portrait of the animal.
Here is a short video of the California Sea Hare that Michelle observed.
TPERP Cathy noticed these swarms of shrimp like critters in the tidepools. Ranger Lauren identified them as tiny crustaceans called mysids. They are pretty common in the tidepools and often are in swarms.
Pauline watched this Osprey after it caught a huge fish. The fish was so huge that the Osprey had trouble trying to fly away. It finally had to drop the fish in order to fly.
TPERP Michelle also captured these diving pelicans.
