Cowrie Videos

  • Mauritia arabica arabica (Linnaeus 1758)

This cute little arabica has been a resident of our marine reef aquarium for nearly 2 1/2 years. Usually hidden under rocks during the day, I was lucky to catch it out and about recently. It tried sampling the glass for a bit of algae but found none where it was, but it was a perfect spot to shoot a little video. After failing to find anything edible on the glass it expanded its mantle and went foraging elsewhere out of camera view.
