Pam Rittelmeyer's Life on the Shore: Tide Pools
Pam Rittelmeyer moved to Malibu 5 years ago from New York City. She worked in the movie business as a camera operator for over 15 years. Since she has been living on the Pacific Coast, in between the ocean and the mountains, she has acquired a new found respect for nature. She is currently working as a wildlife photographer while she is in graduate school at Cal State Fullerton where she will be receiving a Masters degree in Geography. Her future plans include pursuing a PhD. She wants to do her doctorate research in marine conservation in China.

Shore crabs are abundant on our Southern California beaches in the rocky intertidal zones, but you rarely get to see them since they prefer to stay under the cover of rocks and kelp during the day. Occasionally, they will come out during the day and you might get to see them walking along the shore in all of their splendid colors of red, green, and purple. They have been known to catch flies and many other creatures in their claws, but their favorite food is algae.
They, in turn, are eaten by gulls and other animals.
