Sold individually.

Medium-sized marine gastropod mollusc. Native to Eastern coast of North America, though widely distributed. Crepidula are usually intertidal though may also be found in estuaries and throughout the littoral zone. They are commonly found in piles with each addition secreting pheremones that alter the sex of the others in the pile. Specifically, the oldest and largest are female and are at the bottom of the pile. The newest additions are at the top of the pile and are male. For this reason, the term "sequential hermaphrodite" has been applied to this species.
