Can anybody identify this for me?

No animals were harmed in this post, however a few billion electrons were slightly inconvenienced.

Really? A Sundial? I'm not sure. I'm having trouble seeing it. Can it be removed from the rocks for a better pic or a pic from a different angle?

So you don't see this pattern in the original picture? I sure do.

Yeah, if it's a Snail I'd trash that Sundial, but with so many other organisms in the ocean, if it's not a Snail, I'd keep watching to see what it does. I love the diversity. Big smile

FYI, sundial snails apparently eat zoas... In case you're wondering why mark told you to trash it.
