Let's go tidewalking...it's time to get your feet wet!
1. Extreme Low Intertidal Zone is exposed to air only a few hours each month. Animals in the extreme low zone are almost always under water. 2. Low Intertidal Zone is under water more than it is exposed to air. Most shoreline animals are found in this tidewalking area. 3. Mid Intertidal Zone is exposed to water and to air about equally. Animals must survive alternately in water and in air. 4. High Intertidal Zone is bounded by the strand line from the latest high tide. Animals and plants are in air environment more than in water environment. 5. Splash Zone is mostly dry sand. Water rarely reaches this highest zone. It is mainly occupied by land creatures like isopods, sand flies and humans.
