As far as I know, leathers do not have the capability of moving on their own. They will attach to whatever rock you put them on. If you really want to, you could pluck it off the rock it's on and secure it on the rock you want it on. eventually it'll adhere to the rock.

We, as a people, know so much more about outer space than we do about our own oceans. This lack of knowledge can very well spell the dangers that lay in wait for us.

The oceans surely would swallow us before a rock comes down to smite the planet of it's life.

No leathers dont move, and like what TCTFish said u can take it off the small rock and attach it to a larger rock.
I love the Grateful dead
