Chiton

Description:

Gray, with what look like green hairs around its edges. Has many shell-plates on its dorsal side.

Habitat:

Tide pool

Notes:

These guys adhere to rocks and are tough to remove. They move around to feed, and after they're done "hunting," they will return to the same spot, which is pretty neat.
