Flamingo Tongue Snail
This coral reef-dwelling species is very tiny; they only grow to about 2 to 3 centimeters. They are predators, only they don’t prey on smaller animals (that would be hard to find!). Instead, they use their foot to secrete a poison that dissolves the coral’s skin so they can eat it. Sounds painful!
As they eat the coral, they are ingesting the toxins that are within the coral. They store up this poison so they can later use it to defend themselves against larger predators. Although, their bright coloring should be enough to warn predators to stay away since it sends that very clear message.
