We have seen so much! Today is day five of the Puerto peñasco study abroad trip!

In front of CEDO we saw a lot of critters in the tide pools at low tide. These include brittle stars, star fish, sun stars, snails, hermit crabs and crabs, fish, and more.

My favorite critters are the brittle stars. I enjoy the way they move; stars use hundreds of tube feet on the bottoms of their arms to move and catch food. Sun stars and star fish move the same way. They have five teeth on the center of their five arms (brittle stars).


These are pictures of the tube feet on star fish, sun stars, and a mixed box.
