Greenish, blue-ish but also sometimes a yellow or spring green, I'm not sure if those are considered a different type. If out of water or if you touch them in a low tide pool attached to rock out cropping they will close up. They're sticky and have an array of pebbles and debris to camouflage themselves. If you stick your finger in there they try to see if they can eat it by sucking on it, it's kind of weird and probably rude to do to them.
