They feed on crustaceans (shrimp, lobsters, crabs) and mollusks (primarily cowry snails). Their dens are often recognized by the pile of broken crab and snail shells found just outside the entrance. Early Hawaiians also relished he'e and captured them either by spearing or by using lures made of a large cowry shell lashed onto a hook, attracting the he'e with the movements of the lure. The He'e is also believed to be the embodiment of the Hawaiian god Kanaloa, god of the sea
