- Variegated Limpet
Shell conical with ridges and orange-brown markings. Shell up to 5 cm long.
Common Limpets survive on rocks out of the water at low tide by trapping water under their shells. They move around the rocks to feed and return to the same place to rest afterward (homing behaviour), which is marked by a "home scar".
Exposed rocks at all tide levels.
Native to Australia
