    When the tide is out and no algae is around to be eaten, limpets will go to their “home” rock, where they have created a custom depression to fit their respective shells. Such a depression serves as a protective lip around the entirety of a limpet’s shell, making it harder for predators to get under it.[img_assist|nid=174064|title=A limpet on its home rock|desc=|link=none|align=left|width=100|height=75]
