Ox Palate Nerites

Guardian: Josh Jenner

Nerita albicilla

Make a motorcycle helmet big enough to cover your entire body, go to some rocks on the shore, get inside and then look up as 160m waves crash upon you. This is what Nerites snails experience during a storm, waves one hundred times bigger than them crashing onto their heads,

… and they hold on to the rock using only the muscles of their foot.
