Cowries

For centuries, people have used Cowries as currency and for decoration. Although mainly tropical, they are often found locally. The Cowries’ distinctive smoothly polished sheil is achieved by its mantle flaps, which unlike most snails, usually cover the outside of the shell. The mantle is covered in sensory tentacles.
