Sunday, 5 June saw about 45 civilians exploring for low tide life at the Point White Pier with a bevy of Bainbridge Island Beach Naturalists there to help in storytelling and critter identification.
A moon snail … always impressive because of their size.
A red ribbon worm … bright orange and out searching for food. This one was maybe 30 inches long.
Looks like a sand volcano … but wait a couple of minutes, and the sand worm extends its food gathering tentacles and looks like a beach flower. It has amazingly fast reflexes if disturbed … faster than the eye can see it fully hides back under the sand. It’s tentacles are about 1.5+ inches in diameter (right image).
