Like snails and sea slugs, the giant triton is a gastropod. Most gastropods have a shell and a muscular foot they use to move around.
The giant triton spends its days crawling around coral reefs. Its shell is not only beautiful, but useful, protecting it from predators that cannot break through its hard surface.
