It was difficult to get a good focus on this tiny hermit crab. Unfortunately I could not do his lovely blue bands justice.

Some of the Green Anemones at the La Jolla Shores tidepools get fairly large. This one here must have been 6 to 8 inches in diameter.

Tons of these shore crabs inhabit the rock walls along La Jolla Shores' tidepools. The sound of their legs clicking against the rock as the move about creates a symphony of sound when you enter the tiny caves along the rocks.

Not 100% sure on the ID of the chiton, but according to Seashore of Southern California (Sheldon) these prefer indentations, like in the photo, when the tide is low.

I saw this silverfish in Tallahassee on 9/03/03. it was living with others beneath an old box of papers that went untouched for years. They scurried pretty fast when I lifted the box, but luckily I was quick enough to catch this one.

I found this earwig crawling around my Grandma's in Tallahassee, FL on 9/01/08. At first I thought it was Forficula auricularia, but it does not have wings so I am unsure. I believe this one is a male.

This very friendly caterpillar came up to while I was enjoying my lunch in a park. I let him walk all over my hand and up my arm. He was a considerable size, and his plumes of hair stuck out pretty far.

I saw him, among many other or the same species, in holes in a cliff beside a tide pool. They were very shy, however, and it took a lot of patience to get him to come out even that much.
