Like snails and sea slugs, the cone snail is a gastropod. Most gastropods have a shell and a muscular foot that they use to move around; the geographic cone snail has an especially beautiful brown-and-white shell—quite precious to collectors. It spends its time crawling around the reef looking for food. You can often find it in sandy areas and underneath corals. Because of its venom, the geographic cone snail is well protected.
