WhyReef - Lifestyle

Like snails and sea slugs, the tiger cowrie is a gastropod. Most gastropods have shells and muscular feet that they use to move around. Tiger cowries spend most of their time hiding under rocks or dead coral on the reef. At night, they come out to look for food. Even though they may look harmless, they’re predators that use their many rows of teeth to crunch and scrape up my food.
