The haliotis the most brightly coloured of all our sea shells. In the water, the outside of its thick oval shell is rough and dull green, and often encrusted with coral-like seaweeds and other animals.
Inside, the shell is a beautiful iridescent blue, green, and mauve. Beneath the shell is a shiny, black, muscular foot which enables the haliotis to glide about quite quickly when foraging for food.
Haliotis moves about and forage at night, and hide, motionless, during the day. If you disturb it, it clings to the rock with its powerful foot.
They live under rocks and ledges, from low tide level down to six metres, but a few go down to twenty metres.
