Background: Limpet is the common name used for many kinds of saltwater and freshwater snails that have a shell which is conical in shape. The majority of the species can be found adhering to rocks or other hard surfaces and once covered by algae they can often closely resemble the surface itself
Limpets usually live in the intertidal zone and remain safely attached both during severe wave action and in direct sunlight during low tide.
Interestingly some species return to the same spot on the rock just before the tide recedes. In such species, the shape of their shell often grows to match the contours of the rock helping it to adhere more securely
Limpets are cooked and eaten in many different parts of the world, for example: in Hawaii and Portugal limpets are considered a delicacy.

Safety Information: Not suitable for children under 36 months as the shells may present a choking hazard.
