Re Rebecca's message. I had a bit of a search and came up with a few sites..

Giant gum-boot chiton at UCSC
Cryptochiton stelleri at the University of Michigan
Kelp Forest Ecology also at UCSC
This is the search I performed on Metacrawler to find them.



Thanks Peter,
The first picture does look like Rebecca's description of a red gridiron football. .. Bill Rudman.
