On this episode of Beyond the Tide, Coyote and the crew explore the tide pools of the San Juan Islands in search of bizarre marine creatures…and OH BOY do they find them!
From Sea Lemons to Giant Purple Sea Stars almost everything they discover is truly and amazingly unique.
To top it off they also find the largest species of Chiton, the “Gumboot”, in the world which is a creature so bizarre it hardly looks as if it’s even alive! However it does have a striking resemblance to one of the most beloved video game characters of all time.

Caption: Oh my gosh guy what uh-huh . look at that what that that the . government . [music]. the cold blue water of the salish sea is . unlike anything i have ever seen it's an . intricate maze of waterways scattered. with various island chains and beneath . the surface a kingdom of animals that . are seldom encountered i'm going to . touch it ready however if you find . yourself along its incredible stretch of . shoreline or even better on the edge of . one of its many islands stand the chance . of coming across intertidal marine . animals today the crew and i will be . venturing by way of both the uninhabited . doe island the satellite landmass . adjacent orcas island it can be explored . from its northernmost point to the . southernmost point in under 30 minutes . while there are very few animals living . within the interior at low tide the . shoreline is peppered with bizarre sea. creatures so it was only a matter of . looking in the right places to find . something we could get in front of the . camera all right this is just us and the . island wow it's a really cool feeling to . come onto a spot that is completely . uninhabited free of humans anything is . possible . we're really after today is the marine . life that's hiding in and amongst these . rocks now it is low tide as you can see . all this kelp algae and sea grass is . going to be extremely slippery so wash . your ankles guys this is not the kind of . place we want to twist one and an . appalling across the terrain so let's go . up this direction hopefully come across . some cool animals. all right well here's something we . didn't expect we got through all this . dense underbrush and right in the middle . of the island is a trail just make your . versa get to the other side simply all . right guys . look at that the tide all the way back . from here that is perfect hi pulling . area i see some pockets right there . filled with fuel grass see some kelp . down in there this is going to be . perfect for finding marine creatures all . right let's go that's a big piece of . driftwood . well this pockets full well snails. weather all those little guys wow look . at this what's got i don't know if you . can zoom in there look at that little . crevice can you see back here i got it . yeah okay something there what is that . that's called a sea lemon now i can see . it's got its little sensory organs out . and see that little frilly cluster in . the back there right there those . receptors help them sense chemicals in. the environment and that's how these . creatures move about and study their. environment i'm gonna get it now you . ready yep go for it okay real slowly . here you can be very gummy oh give me . your money all right yep tucked all in . there it is that's a sea lemon also . known as a droid and it has very warty . skin sometimes you can find me to end a . real bright yellow that's why they're . called sucky lemons and they also have . these very distinct little black speck . links all over their backs does it smell . like a lemon the question nope it smells. like a slug and they are related to . slugs and mollusks and if i turn it up . like this you down there . there's its foot pretty cool hot very . limiting with yeah very it's like a big . gummy lemon look at that just like the . warty see cast we found in costa rica it . just kind of turns into it the law when . you hold it . ready guys ready to put the sea lemon . back under the logs let's do it okay . before we do i got a quick tongue . twister for you ready all right . not all lemons are sea lemons but all c . lemons live in the sea . try saying that ten times fast not all . lemons of sealable - yes is it all right . here we go . a little guy gives a second to grab on . the c remand may not be the most . difficult animal to catch however . finding one is said to be good luck that . they are an indicator species and signal. a very healthy ecosystem this gave me a . strong sense of confidence because of . the environment is free of pollutants . that means more creatures to hide ah i . thought that was going to help something . amazing all right look at this one this . kind of needs to know look at how all of . the seaweed is completely matted down . and dried up in the sunlight so . underneath this is where an animal will . potentially find refuge from the sun . once the tide has gone out come on whoa . whoa see look at this it is a huge . prickleback wow that is the biggest one . i've ever seen in this let me look at . its face i believe this is a rock . prickleback and i can tell that based on . the distinct striped marking right there . on the front of its head look at that . it's huge now you look at this creature . probably get yourself tired once an eel . that's not a fish a matter of fact and a . fish it's not a true eel at all despite . the fact that it really looks like one . now it's impossible for me to completely . keep this thing still there we go so . down right there . zoom in there on the head of this animal . mark i see those distinct stripes they . do that's how i was able to identify it . as a rock prickle back there are several . pirkle back species in this area but . this is the largest and this may look . big to you and me this is the biggest . one i've ever caught but they can grow . to be about 3 feet in length oh man so . coyote is it slimy or the slippery life . radically slimy and slippery and here's . something really cool about these . prickle backs they can actually breathe . air they breathe underwater with their. gills and then when the tide goes out . they can stay out of the water for . several hours breathing air . notice that ridge that runs along its. back that dorsal spine that have little . tiny spikes on it and i can feel that . kind of like the fins of a bluegill and . it's not sharp enough to necessarily . prick me but they use that to help . themselves balance when swimming. underwater the coyote these fish can . they dry out because we found them out . of water like there's no water in the . dry well they can't dry completely out . so if it was sitting out on a rock in . the sun that would obviously kill it but . underneath the rock even if there's no . water they can secrete a mucus from . their skin that keeps them wet and . slippery i do keep dipping it into the . water here watch this so if i just kind . of keep its head cupped and dip it in . that allows it to stay cool and moist . and i think at this point it's probably . safe to say we can release this prickle . back back off from the ocean . great idea look do it there we go all . right keep searching with what seemed . like an endless supply of smaller rocks . to carefully search beneath . we also found ourselves maneuvering over . and around massive boulders that were . exposed by the low tide while these . massive rock structures would not be . possible to overturn searching for. animals in the crevices was a perfect . place to look . shaded spot here like this is still wet . and slippery oh look at over there see . that. that's our heightened note that the kite . it looks like a barnacle or part of the . rock that's actually a mollusk on a . security token just not really really . sucks. [music]. there we go oh look at the other side of . that thing looks just like the foot of a . slug doesn't it they're not a barnacle . no it's not a particle this is a mollusk . they're related to slugs and snails now . this is a small species i'm not sure. which species you look at the back there . you see all these armor plates that run . down the center those are called vents. and believe it or not the largest . species of chitin lives in this area and . that's honestly what i'm hoping to come . across today the tide is low enough to . just matter being in the right place at . the right time finding the right series . of rocks i haven't played with this one . right back here in the shade all right . ski move it trying to find the giant . gumboot somewhat younger titan so far . aside from the prickleback everything we . were finding was rather small that is . until i jumped between two boulders and . found myself in the land of giants la . hermit crab. mussel sea cucumber yes . oh my goodness look at their oh . beside that sea star whoa and it's . purple. why did you ever see a sea star that big. before no i've never seen one that . purple either wow that is a first for me . i think that could be our star oh my . gosh oh my gosh guys what this is one . thing i hope we find their bigger one no . no no i got me i got it look at that . what is that that's a gumboot with the . dumbu it's a chitin it is actually a . type of mollusk related to snails and. slugs and i think between the two v's we . have found our feature creatures all . right actually the tide is starting to . come back in at this point let's move up . a little ways and get these two up close . for the cameras wow this is awesome . wow. how'd we do i would say that was quite . possibly the most successful high pool . adventure we have ever had . now most of the animal species will be . found we showed you quickly and then we . released them right back into a while . about our to feature creatures we just . had to take some time to get up close . for the camera . now i'm gonna reach into the bucket here . i did bring a bucket just in case we . found something it was worth holding on . to for a little bit of time but are you . going to do the tides all it yeah the . tide is coming back in pretty quickly so . we only have a few minutes with these . animals but if you're ready let's go for . the first one that let's see them okay . here we go . this is the largest sea star i have ever . seen like you've got algin kelp all over . school to pizza and it's purple it is . purple now i will give you one guess as . to what type of sea star this is wait . here's a hint. what color is it great haha close a good . guess it is a purple sea star and this
