My favorite Bamfield holiday creature is...
Bugula californica, the bryozoan that looks like a tree
Calliostoma annulatum, the marine snail with the gaudy shell
Pisaster ochraceus, the sea star that's fit to top any Christmas tree.
Oncorhynchus nerka, the sockeye salmon with the red-and-green motif
Cryptolithodes sitchensis, the umbrella crab with a pale pink and green "Christmas sweater"-like carapace
Lopholithodes mandtii, who is brighter than a house covered with Christmas lights
Anarrhichthys ocellatus, the wolf eel. Bah, humbug!
