Really low tides expose parts of the sea’s floor we normally don’t get to see. This past week during the evening low tides, I videoed a live SHARK’S EYE in my hand and also showed you the STARFISH cruising the tide pool on my last post Go Starfish Go. Well, I’ve got another video for you too…. a live OLIVE scooting along in the sand near the east end of Sanibel near the lighthouse. It is nice to find shells to take home but it’s even cooler to see live, healthy creatures hanging out in their own little world. Enjoy!
Wow! That guy is really cruising….too bad he ended up right where he started! LOL…great videos..keep em coming!
Amazing!! Can’t wait til we get there in Oct.
talk about runnning around in circles! Is the whitish”feeler” a sensor or breather?
It’s called a siphon and yes! It’s like a snorkel for “breathing” and I think for finding food too.
That is awesome. I have never seen a live olive shell before when shelling.
Awesome! I have never seen a live olive when shelling. Thanks for sharing.
That’s so cool. I wonder if he knew he wound up at the exact same place he started! hehe!
I collected olive shells when we were there a couple of years ago but have never seen a live one. I’ve been checking your site each morning before I start my work day and it makes me smile! We will be there in October and I look so forward to it! Thanx for your work on here! It’ such a great place to come and relax!
I bet olive of his friends are jealous you made this great video of him! LOL.
Those little dudes are surprisingly quick! Too bad he didn’t get anywhere!
Very cool! It’s so nice to see who lives in these shells that we love so much!
I haven’t seen that before…very interesting. One of my favorite things (besides collecting shells) is to observe all of the creatures in the tide pools. It’s fascinating.
I’m coming down this weekend!!! I can’t wait.
Love it! Love it! Love it! And it sounded just like a little bird! ;-)
Beautiful, I am absolutely loving your videos and your daily blog! I miss Sanibel so much and not sure when we will be able to return (economy :( thumbs down). The sounds of the water and the birds brings back so many memories and makes my heart ache for Sanibel.
THANKS so much!!
Cool video…when we were there in April… live Olives were everywhere! I also have some cool pics of the designs they made.
Pam…. thank you so much for the time you put in on these videos and pics!! I’m quite cranky if I don’t get my ‘I Love Shelling’ fix every day!!!!
My sisters loved their caps…… and thank you for the great note – and shell! – that you tucked in the box!!!!
Pam, that was awesome. Thanks.
Lee & Bill
Amazing the last few video’s you have posted..seeing live shells,Starfish…just so much that me & my family havenever seen. We loved the Sharks Eye Video the most. Also never seen a live olive before.Thank you for taking your time in showing us all.
All God’s critters got a place in the choir, some sing low, some sing higher!! Amazing…thank you!!
I love your live shell videos. So remarkable! This Olive almost made a heart shape. Thanks for sharing this Pam!
Great video! I, too, have never seen a live olive, but have collected several empty specimens over the years. Do they really move that fast, or was the vido sped up? Loved it, and keep them coming!
Thanks Pam for bringing a bit of beauty, peace and tranquility to our lives.
That’s such an interesting video! I’ve never seen a live olive in action. Thanks for sharing it!
