South Cottesloe Beach - What else in a reef hole?

Reef holes are really good places to explore at low tide.

I was surprised by the variety of creatures I found in the same reef hole. Besides a feather star, sea stars, elephant snails, chitons, and sea anemones, I also found the following:

A blenny (?) and two juvenile stripeys (only one in this photo)

A shrimp which I didn't notice until it landed itself on my leg!

An "unknown" (to me)

Great shots. At least it was only a shrimp which landed on your leg, not an Octopus!
Too many scary, stingy things in your ponds.
Fascinating, though.

Ha ha! I think I will jump if one landed on my leg!
