With the arrival of the Spring Tidal phase occurring during park hours more visitors are able to explore the intertidal bench here at Cabrillo National Monument during our low tide events. Among the many creatures one can observe are the Crustaceans. Two that have been recently seen recently are the Common Rock Crab (Cancer antennarius) and the Globose Kelp Crab (Taliepus nuttalli). Learn more about these crusty critters in this edition of Cabrillo Field Notes.
