  • vireo_virensLooks like a chiton-possibly a gumboot chiton (shell on the inside) not sure which local species though: https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chiton
  • rhoneypots@vireo_virens ooh that's it! Thank you!
  • michellehalburDouble the chiton ID. They have a beautiful shell underneath that can often be found on the beach separated into segments and looks like a butterfly.
  • vireo_virens@rhoneypots you're welcome! Such a big cool critter!
