Slugathon, Part 1

22 species of nudibranchs at Pillar this morning, which is pretty damn good for one guy surveying a very small area. AND I didn't see a lot of common stuff. Crazy. Lots of classes out there this morning. Showed some of them an octopus and they totally freaked out, many cries of "best field trip ever." I even got an appreciation cheer!

Apparently the lack of white flecking on the rhinophores makes this D. columbiana, not D. kya like I had originally thought. Hooray for the Internet!

Hah, thanks, that is a good one.

I didn't realize your strange power over children manifested itself so long ago.

They were probably cheering for someone holding a cooler octopus right behind me.
