"If we and the rest of the backboned animals were to disappear overnight, the rest of the world would get on pretty well. But if the invertebrates were to disappear, the land's ecosystems would collapse."

Manic Limpets!

Limpets are one of those animals which people struggle to see as animate creatures. They live life in slow motion but also they keep that lid-like shell clamped down most of the time we encounter them- its hard to believe that are really alive and not just lumps on the rocks. But speed them up a hundred times or so and they really spring into action!
