Tiger Cowrie (Cypraea tigris) Care
The Tiger Cowrie, Cypraea tigris, comes from the Indo-Pacific region. Normally the mantle is entirely out and surrounds the shell; however, if the animal is scared, it retracts the mantle into the shell. The shell has tooth-like structures to keep the cowrie safe from predators.
