katydid52 Sometimes, when you're clambering through the tidepools, using muscles you didn't know existed, you must reach out to a rock for assistance. If you do, be sure it hasn't caught the Barnacle Fever.
On the other hand, if you stand there and listen quietly for a moment, you can hear them each in their little caverns.
Just clucking away.

astn_mrtn Beautiful, healthy Ochre Sea Star (Pisaster ochraceus). Prepping my dive mask tonight and repairing a small hole in my wetsuit so I can go snorkeling and see some of these amazing creatures under water. I've never snorkeled before, so I'm incredibly excited to learn. Gotta start getting comfortable in the water before my scuba certification in July!

astn_mrtn First time seeing a Mossy Chiton (Mopalia muscosa)! Nestled up next to a couple Aggregating Anemones and Thatched Barnacles for low tide.

astn_mrtn Colony of Botrylloides violaceaous sea squirts growing on the underside of a rock down at Clayton Beach. Each colony is made up of many small, filter feeding individuals called zooids.

katydid52 A leather sea star.
Learned so many things today while tidepooling with @rangerjosh this morning.
For instance, if you go tidepooling and find a sea star, it's OK to hold them.
But remember, it hurts their cute little feet if you pull them off a rock.
And they're much happier if you dunk them every so often.
It was so great to finally meet you, my friend.
And until we meet again. (Hopefully Yellowstone!) 🏼 #Instafriends
