Allied cowries are lovely little creatures in the mollusc family, related to nudibranchs and various other shells. Some of these live on beautiful sea fans and have beautiful matching camoflauge of their own in their mantles. This allied cowrie was on a fan in Papua New Guinea. The fan polyps are open, lending to a lush and colorful look.
