Wheke Spotting 101 - Practical Assessment Part B

The purpose of this assessment is to ensure that the student can spot a wheke without guidence.

While @pjd1 and I were fluffing around in the shallow subtidal, without prompting he spotted this little tricky wheke that has tucked itself well under the rocks. The first photo shows how well hiden it was and I would not have seen it if it had not been pointed out to me.

The second photo, while blurry with all of the sediment floating around does show the eyes to enable a species ID.

Assessment Mark: A+ as well as 3 gold stars for finding this one as I would not have seen it

Part A of the assessment is spotting a wheke with guidence - but that is another story which can be found here :)

(Note: the location of this wheke was not in the sand but that is what the gps put the location as and I can not change it. Seems not only are there many living things up here that are tricky even getting accurate gps locations can also be tricky - surprise! LOL)

Wheke Spotting 101 - Practical Assessment Part A

The purpose of this assessment is to ensure that the student can spot a wheke with guidence.

Arriving at the G2, @pjd1 sat on a rock about 1.5m away from me to put on fins while I scanned the water which was about 100mm deep.

Me: There is a wheke between you and me

Pjd1: Are you the wheke whisperer?
(Well what can I say - how can you do a pracitcal assessment without any wheke to spot? LOL)

A minute later:
Me: The wheke is show the camoflauge skills in the browns

Next minute:
Me: The wheke is sneaking across the grey pebbles playing "you can't see me"
(Sneaky wheke knew that with the wind creating distortion on the top of the water it would be hard to spot)

Once spotted the wheke decided to go and introduce itself and explore the fin (photo 2) seeing if it would make a good hidy hole (Photo 3). Deciding that wasn't a good idea (and I am not sure if that is because it would not fit or because of toe jams) it retreated (Photo 4) then paused by the leg for a scale shot (Photo 5) before going about it's other business.

Assessment Mark: A

Part B of the assessment is spotting a wheke without guidence - but that is another story which can be found here:)

This one was small - no longer than 40mm so I am not sure if this is a juvenile or a different species.

Why I think it may be a different species because of the black and white edging around the mantle.

Another interesting find @pjd1 :)

It looks like eggs of something. It's spherical with what looks like a hollow tube down the middle. About 10-15mm diameter..
This was the first I saw, but then found about another 20. All washing up in the shallows on the incoming tide.
