What is Abalone?

Abalone or oysters is a type of clams. It has a soft body but with a hard skin. Most of its soft body is located under the skin, while the part of the body outside the skin is its legs. 

Abalone’s big legs are made up of muscles. With its mucles, abalones can stick to rocks.
At the top of the abalone, there are holes through which water can pass.

Abalone lives in the sea. Currently, there are about 100 different species of abalones recorded. Fishermans has taken abalones from the sea since long time ago. 

Inside the abalones skin there is a shiny object called “The Coral Pearl”. This material is usually used to make accessories and buttons. The soft part of the abalone, its body, is made into food.
