Project Description

Montagu’s Sea Snail

Scientific name: Liparis montagui
Size: Up to 6cm long
Colour: Light brown
Habitat: In rockpools

  • Despite the name, this is a species of fish!
  • Due to their rounded head and narrower tail, they look rather like a tadpole.
  • Much like Cornish Suckerfish, their pelvic fins are fused to form a suction cup.
  • They are quite a rare find in rockpools because they like to hide in rocky crevices and are usually very small.
