GARIBALDI FISH TRAPPED IN TIDE POOL UNTIL HIGH TIDE! LA JOLLA

A HUGE GARIBALDI FISH GOT TRAPPED IN A TIDE POOL UNTIL HIGH TIDE!  This particular reef has a tide pool shaped perfectly round with an indentation around it that is a shallow pool, which attracts lots of tiny shore crabs.  The Garibaldi fish swam around and around waiting impatiently for the high tide so he could escape.  The tiny shore crabs swarmed around the tide pool hole & the Harbor seals napped nearby.  When a Willet shore bird came by to catch the crabs, the crabs all scurried to the edge of the reef and tucked themselves into crevices.  Such is ocean life at La Jolla!  You can watch a video of the Garibaldi fish swimming at YouTube:  California By the Sea!
