Awabi butt

The awabi, abalone is connected to its shell. The animal itself has a head, a pair of eyes, a mouth and a large pair of tentacles. Inside the mouth is a file-like tongue which scrapes algal matter to a size that can be swallowed. The internal organs of abalone are arranged spirally under the shell. If the gonad is a green or grey color the abalone is a female.
