Artist's notes:

The Flamingo Tongue Snail was completed on 12.19.2014. A few years ago I saw a photo of this gastropod and considered drawing one at the time. When putting a collage together recently that featured some of the marine animals native to the Caribbean Ocean, I realized I hadn't included a snail. Then I recalled this snail and decided to add it to the image library.

Information about the Flamingo Tongue Snail:

The Flamingo Tongue Snail is a marine gastropod member of the family Ovulidae. It lives in the sub-tidal zones of the Caribbean and South Atlantic Oceans. They are fairly small - only about 1 inch long. Unlike nudibranchs, flamingo tongue snails have a shell; however, the shell is typically not visible in living animals due to the mantle flesh covering it. When alive, the snail appears yellow-orange with irregular shaped spots ringed in black. However, the mantle can be retracted, exposing the shell. This snail is extremely over-collected and this has led to called for it to be protected.
