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