Abstract: 1. C. scabra less than 4mm long home. The rate at which they change home sites may be greater than that of adults. 2. Homing in adults persists after burning the home site and surrounds. 3. Chemical trail following may play a role in homing of juveniles, limpets which have voluntarily changed sites, and limpets removed from the field and placed on new substrates.
