Snail, Needs ID
These are just about ready to go. It looks like a few already have gone.
Cabezone Eye with Isopods
Is this Fred? Or Ethel? or some other wolfie?
Black-Eyed Hermit Crab
California Sea Lion
Brittle Star on Red Gorgonian
Kelp Greenling(?) Eggs
Based on the behavior of a male Kelp Greenling, I suspect he was defending these eggs.
Hermissend Crassicornis and Red Octopus
I was shooting this nice Hermissenda Crassicornis when a Red Octopus trampled right over the top of the nudibranch. No damage done to either critter.
Short-Spined Sea Star
This sea star is trying real hard to look like an octopus. Not really. Maybe this is behavior leading up to loosing its arms, which has been happening to several species of sea start lately.
