|Uncommon Sightings and Creatures in the Kelp|

We got VERY lucky again on Golf Ball Reef last weekend. Thordisa rubescens mating and laying eggs.
There's no limit to how small animals can be in the kelp. Check out the juvenile crab under the snail.
Dr. Jeff Goddard suggested that these are juvenile slipper snails, Crepidula norrisiarum, later to be found on Norris top snails.
Barely visible to the naked eye, amphipods scuttle around the kelp fronds.
Yes, there's even MORE happening on kelp. Amphissa versicolor snail eggs.
