Caption: Three empty tiger cowrie (Cypraea tigris) shells. The tiger cowrie inhabits reefs in the tropical Indo-Pacific region, feeding on corals and small invertebrates. Its spotted and glossy shell is popular with collectors, and hunting and habitat destruction have led to a dramatic reduction in its numbers. Filmed in Brunei.
