HISTORY & FACTS: These large sea snails live in tropical reefs in the Indian Ocean (off Tanzania, Madagascar, Aldabra and the Mascarene Basin) and tropical western Pacific oceans; also off Queensland Australia. They are nocturnal and feed on algae. The shells of these large sea snails have a very thick layer of Nacre also know as mother or pearl and therefore has been commercially fished resulting in these shells becoming rare and regulated.
