Beautiful West coast shoreline, with its crashing waves and rocky beaches. Calming to hear the waves going back and forth. Yet, so dangerous if you were to venture in its waters.

082Pollicipes polymerus is found in the north eastern Pacific Ocean, its range extending from southern Alaska to Baja California. It occurs on rocky coasts in the intertidal zone and favors exposed areas where there is much wave action. It tends to occur in closely associated groups and is often abundant.
