Good morning Tuesday, yesterday I went to my aqua class and it went ok, getting out of the pool I had to take it slow and make sure I placed my left foot flat on the step to protect the achilles tendon.
Well being Tuesday means it is Indestructible Creatures day, today's creature is something called a Limpet, another creature I have not heard of.
They are a type of snail with super strong, thick shells which make them near impossible to budge. Inside their shells they have special tongues covered with tiny teeth, which they use for scraping algae. These teeth are strengthened with iron and look like miniature daggers and they hold the record for being the hardest material known to be made by any animal or plant.
Their teeth are so hard that as they feed they actually scrape lines into the rock itself, you can spot where a limpet has been by the rows of little grooves. They cling to rocks using their powerful muscles and a kinda gluey slime.
When the tide is in they crawl around underwater and feed, when the tide is out they clamp themselves to a rock to stay damp and safe from predators.
