Cypraeoidea (superfamily) (Mesogastropoda (order), Prosobranchia (subclass), ... Living Organisms (hierarchy name))

 

Note: Cowrie shells (Cypraeidae) and egg shells (Ovulidae) that have highly polished and brilliantly colored shells and a mantle, which may cover the shell; if touched, members of group suddenly withdraw, the change in colour serving to confuse predators; common in shallow tropical oceans, some species in cooler waters.

Additional Notes:
Chinese (traditional) ..... 寶螺科(Cypraeidae)與海兔螺科(Ovulidae)成員具有光滑、顏色鮮艷的殼,以及覆蓋住殼的外套膜;如果受外力碰觸,此類動物會突然往殼內縮,殼的顏色亦會改變,藉以混淆敵人;一般生活於熱帶海洋中,某些種類則是生活於較涼的水域。 
Dutch ..... Cowrieschelpen (Cypraeidae) en eierschelpen (Ovulidae) met een sterk gepolijste en felgekleurde schelp en een mantel die de schelp soms bedekt. Bij aanraking trekken leden van een groep zich plotseling terug, waarbij de kleurverandering roofvijanden moet verwarren. Komt algemeen voor in ondiepe tropische oceanen, maar sommige soorten leven in koelere wateren.
