Simnia and egg cluster on red gorgonian, Delonovolva aequalis, Lophogorgia chilensis, Anacapa Island Nudibranch, Rose Atoll National Wildlife Sanctuary Krill and squid school at the ocean surface, moments before blue and fin whales rise to the surface to feed.  The krill is likely Euphausia pacifica, the squid are likely Loligo opalescens. A thin cloud of pink krill gathers at the ocean surface, where it is likely to be preyed upon by sharks, fish, birds and whales, Loligo opalescens, Euphausia pacifica, San Diego, California

Green abalone, Haliotis fulgens Venus comb murex.  Scientists speculate that the distinctively long and narrow spines are a protection against fish and other mollusks and prevent the mollusk from sinking into the soft, sandy mud where it is commonly found, Murex pecten California sea cucumber.  Sea cucumbers are related to sea stars and sea urchins. The sharp looking spines are soft to the touch and disappear into the skin when disturbed. If this visual defense doesnt work, the sea cucumber will expel its respiratory system. When this occurs in the wild it can regrow the lost organs, Parastichopus californicus
