Kinda grizzly

If you like graphic violence, you’re at the right place today. This is a triton’s trumpet sea snail devouring a cushion star, which has been turned on its back. These snails are the largest in the island and feed on echinoderms, which include stars, cucumbers, and urchins.

      I’m surprised I don’t see more predator/prey interactions, since most everything in the water is one or the other of those things. But I think they’re often over so fast, they’re easy to miss. This one was slow enough for me to see.
