ask the eggsperts

Post by Scott G » Fri Dec 19, 2008 8:13 pm

I don't know eggs at all... anyone know what these are?

from shallow, high energy areas... was told that greenling eggs look like oatmeal... could that be the way?

Thanks in advance,
Scott

Whelks or dogwinkles, perhaps?

They could be leafy hornmouth eggs . . . They lay them in big clusters like that, and they're yellow.

I don't know my snails, but that had snail eggs written all over it.
