Armeniaca Brunnea

in Habitat

At night, animal moving over sponge, part of the mantle can be seen with simple finger like papillae. Foot extracted, showing the tenticales with eyes at the anterior end.

And something intresting I picked up from Mr Lorenz's book, did you know that some species of cowries are able to shed part of their foot in order to confuse predators when attacked, ( known as Autotomy). Caurica elongata breaks off a portion of the posterior part of its foot, and then draws into the shell, while cypraea kieneri, does the same but also lets out a quantity of slimy liquid making it hard for the hungry predators to get a hold.
