The Flamingo Tongue Snail

Cyphoma gibbosum

Cool facts!

This colorful sea snail lives primarily in the Caribbean and Atlantic ocean. Its shell is actually white but the creature itself makes the patches on its back so colorful. This sea snail feeds off of toxic sea fans, making the creature toxic itself! When attacked, it can wipe out its color and turn completely white to avoid predators.
