There were a few snails I was hoping to see alive, unfortunately almost all shells had hermit crabs in!
These two playing tug of war with the remains of this clam.
Pagurus samuelis, the blueband hermit crab, is a species of hermit crab from the west coast of North America, and the most common hermit crab in California. It is a small species, with distinctive blue bands on its legs. It prefers to live in the shell of the black turban snail, and is a nocturnal scavenger of algae and carrion.
