Biology

Commonly found in rocky intertidal and subtidal areas, but also over sand and in eelgrass and seaweeds (Ref. 2850). May leave tide pools if aquatic conditions become inhospitable (Ref. 31184). Occasionally enters fresh water (Ref. 27547). Probably feeds on small invertebrates common among seaweed and in tide pools. Breathes air when out of water (Ref. 31184).
