The nutrition of the Bronze Pinecone consists mainly of a vegetarian diet. It eats using a radula that is common to the class Gastropoda. The radula is a tongue-like structure used for scrapping off material to eat. They mainly chew on leaves, bark (which is common this snail because of its habitat) and decomposed materials. They do have a complete digestion tract, however, the anus is located near the head of snail and a problem a fouling occurs. Gastropods have an open circulatory system unlike humans who have closed system where blood does not leave our blood vessels. For more information on Gastropods, go Here!
