Reticulated Cowry

Cypraea maculifera

Description:

Live cowry, which I carefully returned to to where I found it after taking its picture. I never got a good look at it outside its shell, since it hid as soon as I picked it up. Smooth, beautiful shell.

Habitat:

Found under a ledge in a rocky pool at the shoreline. It was clinging strongly to the rock.

Notes:

Not certain of species ID, but looked like a good guess.
