Husbandry

Naria nebrites (Melvill, 1888)

Cypraeidae, common name the cowries (singular: cowry), is a taxonomic family of small to large sea snails. These are marine gastropod mollusks in the superfamily Cypraeoidea, the cowries and cowry allies. Juvenile cowry shells are not at all similar to adult cowry shells. Cowries have no operculum.

Naria nebrites is a algae grazer.
