Boatshells & BubblesAdd to Lightbox Download
Boat shells are also called Cradle shells, Slipper shells or knuckles. They are formed by a snail-like mollusk. They cluster together piggy-back style, with males attaching to a female. They are hermaphroditic, a male replacing the first female when needed. These groups stay together long enough for seaweeds to attach themselves to the outer shells. They prefer bays which are not too rough, and sometimes make up large areas. They are edible.
