Tidepool Tim says,  “Rock gunnels look like little eels. We find them burrowed beneath rocks and seaweed, waiting for the tide to come back in. They are able to survive outside water because their slimy skin prevents them from drying out and allows them to slither into safe crevices. They can also breathe air, though they do best with access to water and seaweed."
