Snail with a bumpy raincoat, yeah.

Anyone know what it is?

That's the best way I can describe it.... sorta looks like a sea slug but sorta looks like a snail, has bumps on it's "shell" but has no shell unless the shell is underneath this translucent blue coating.

Moves like a snail and seems to have a foot. Also behaves like a snail.

Any ideas? Sorry for blurry pic.

Thanks in advance,

I have one of those too.. So far I haven't see him bother anything but I have always wondered what it was.. Never could get a good pic of him though.. I am hanging around to find out the results

Looks like a Stomatella snail - I'll see if I can dig up a picture.

I think you called it though...

Looks close enough for me anyways... I guess they are common hitchhikers..

Yah... it's almost gotta be a variety of stomatella from the looks of it

Like a regular snail but with a bumpy rubber coating.

Sort of an upgraded snail.

Thanks!
