Biology     Glossary (e.g. epibenthic)

In local markets, vendors traditionally give the buyer aromatic thorns (Acacia pennata) to pry the meat out of the small shell. Also used in the shellcraft industry, to make dolls and decorative items (Ref. 349). Also found in shallow subtidal water. Occurs at the low tide mark (Ref. 349). Members of the order Archaeogastropoda are mostly gonochoric and broadcast spawners. Life cycle: Embryos develop into planktonic trocophore larvae and later into juvenile veligers before becoming fully grown adults (Ref. 833).
