Bulla occidentalis A. Adams, 1850 Western Striate Bubble And Fireworm Preadator

4:51:33 PM: Right after we entered the water, I came upon this fireworm, Chloeia viridis, entering a Bulla occidentalis. I had photographed this behavior twice this past month, and still didn’t have that “perfect” photo, so I decided to stick around to photograph the worm devouring the poor little shell.
