Learn about this unique sea specimen - the Northern Lampshell - just collected by Tidepool Tim as he explores their features and life habits!

Tidepool Tim says,  “Lamp shells got their name because they look like a Roman lamp! At first glance, these creatures appear to be molluscs. In fact, the Northern lamp shell and other brachiopods are connected dorsally and ventrally - not laterally like molluscs.”
