And what happens if those traps aren’t placed carefully in a tidal zone?

    Okay – who posted this – Tim or Simone?

    I will note that this was our very first time at the site, and we were not aware the tides were so high :)

      I suggested the picture and Simone approved it. So it’s both our faults.
