All very busy

Tiny things are so much easier to see if they're moving. Here's a short video of the bryozoans and dorids from yesterday's post.


The eggs are probably from the Frost Spot Dorid, Corambe pacifica, because they're arranged in a circle. The other nudibranch that feeds on these bryozoans, Doridella steinbergi, lays its eggs in a semi-circle or shorter arc. There were a few of these on the hydroids growing on the kelp.

Los animales miniaturos se ven mucho más claro cuando se mueven. Aquí subo un video corto de los briozoos y nudibranquios.

Los huevos probablemente son los del Doris Corambe pacifica, porque están dispuestos en un círculo. El otro nudibranquio que vive en estos briozoos, el Doridella steinbergi, pone sus huevos en un arco de medio círculo o menos. Había unos cuantos de éstos en los hidroides que crecen en el kelp.

Also, I have word verification on, because I found out that not only do I get spam without it, but it gets passed on to anyone commenting in that thread. Not cool!
