Warm in the sun
The tide pool:
Rocks bigger then pebbles
In the low water levels the rocks would get hotter and then warm up the surrounding water
But when you have an open rush of sea water it is very cold or the temp goes down
More mud then sand
Seems to give enough to creatures that like to be under cover or who use the cover to their advantage
Or what they can attach themselves to
But defiantly a wet environment
Creatures in the Tide Pool:
Different kind of Crabs:
Ones that use others homes for their own that have one claw bigger than the other
One that has is green and has 6 legs and 2 claws
Deeper rocks in the water more barnacles on the rocks
Snails – Periwinkle
Growth of different kinds of plants
Hotter than the beach
Questions of snails:
Why are snails on the rock?
I cannot remember where I read this but on a website it says something about snail conserving energy by following other snails. They have to produce less mucus so they follow them on the line.
What kind of snails?
How are they are related?
Why so the shells have a whole?
I think it is a close cousin to the periwinkle but could not find the land snail. The colors seem to go well
Descriptions are close to the land snail that it comes in from a shell, thought the snails in the sea are slightly heavier. Yet they still have a whole , Which might come from predators coming in or the shell becomes brittle after the snail dies.
