As there are a great variety of species of this animal, so these species ditter from each other in their form. The bodies of some of these are hemispherical, others cylindrical, and others fhaped like a fig. Their subfiance likewise differs; for some are fiff and glutinous, others Aethy agd, muscular ; but they are all capable. of alrering their thape, when they extend their bodies and claws in iearch of their food. We find them on our rocky coafts at low water, Ered in the Thallows or some solid fubitaace, by a broad bare like a sucker ; but they can shift their fituation, thouga their movement is very low. . They have only one opeaiog. which is in the centre of the upper most part of the animal ; round this are placed rows of Refiy claws : this opening is the mouth of the animal, and is capable of great extenfion : It is amazing to see what large shell 6M fome of them can (wallow, such as murcles, crabs, &c.

The lower part of these bodies have a communication with a firm flechy wrinks led tube, which flicks fast to the rocks, and sends forth other Beshy tubes, which creep along them in various
