Costa Rica Picture of the Day – Each day the Costa Rican Times will be including a picture from around Costa Rica to see the natural beauty and amazing things that we get to see each day in the land of the Pura Vida.
While walking along the rocks in Tamarindo I came across a multitude of limpets.
Limpets are small molluscks with flattened, cone-shaped shells. They live in the intertidal zone, attached to rocks or other hard ground.
Limpets move by moving the muscles of their foot in a wave-like motion.
Limpets are hermaphrodites and change from male to female after a couple of years.
