Climbing Up

Norris’ top snail (Norrisia norrisii) is a medium sized marine snail commonly found from Point Conception to Baja California, Mexico. You can see several on the giant kelp in this image. These snails work hard…  they climb up to graze on the giant kelp, and then they drop down to the sea floor to sleep at night. Next time you swim through a kelp forest, try looking for them.
