The flamingo tongue snail

🌊ANIMAL FACT🌊 The flamingo tongue is a small marine snail that lives on coral reefs in the western Atlantic Ocean. This species is very colorful, with bright pink or orange coloration and black spots. Interestingly, these colors are not associated with the shell, which is somewhat drab. Instead, the color comes from the marine snail’s soft tissue, which is almost always wrapped around the entire outside of the shell. Source: Oceana
