The Bluetop is a common marine snail. Its color can vary from brown, the most common, to bright yellow and blue. This animal likes areas with fast currents, where it feeds on kelp. For this reason, this Bluetop snail does not usually inhabit the intertidal zone. Thus, you are very unlikely to find one when you're beach walking or exploring a tidepool.
