The chambered nautilus is a living fossil whose relatives date back 100s of millions of years. The nautilus lives at great depths (1800) within fore-reef habitats of the Indian and Pacific oceans. It is an active swimmer, propelling itself close to the sea floor by expelling  water from its movable siphon, Nautilus pompilius
