Limpets

Limpets have a shell like a conical cap. They move slowly across the rocks, grazing on microscopic algae or larger seaweeds. Some limpets return to their ‘home’ base, a circular scar on the rocks, after feeding. Limpets and chitons use the suction pressure from their very large foot to hold onto the rock surface.
