The red helmet seashells, aka: Bull-mouth helmets are sandy bottom dwellers that feed mainly on sea urchins and starfish. The name is derived from the thick protruding outer lip of the shell which resembles a fireman's helmet. These shells have layers of strongly contrasting colors which combined with their overall size, are the shell of choice for carving cameos.
