In New Leaf

In New Leaf, an information board in the aquarium will list information about this creature.

"Abalones grow less than an inch a year, so it takes several years for them to grow to full size. They are related to ear shells and have been used in celebrations and offerings since ancient times."

Further information

Main article: Abalone on Wikipedia

The shell of abalones is convex, rounded to oval shape, and may be highly arched or very flattened. The shell of the majority of species is ear-shaped. The exterior of the shell is striated and dull. The color of the shell is very variable from species to species which may reflect the animal's diet. The shell of the abalone is exceptionally strong and is made of microscopic calcium carbonate tiles stacked like bricks. Between the layers of tiles is a clingy protein substance.
