Survival at Sea: Crustaceans

If you’re a tiny crustacean in an intertidal zone (“the area that is above water at low tide and under water at high tide“), surviving the crashing waves is a matter of getting low, low, low.

Crustaceans stick to their homes and avoid the tidal pull by attaching to rocks or burrowing under the sand when the high tide and rough waves come crashing in.

Get low with the jellies, sharks, gray seals and more at the Aquarium of the Pacific and Guardian of the Sea Live Cams here.
