Threats

Major Threats
This species' deep water environment protects it from casual gathering and scuba divers. It can only be brought to the surface as a by-catch from fishing or from dredging specifically for benthic taxa, however, excessive dredging would act as a threat. There are no known major threats to this species.

Wikipedia

Conus pergrandis

Conus pergrandis is a species of sea snail, a marine gastropod mollusk in the family Conidae, the cone snails and their allies.[1]

Like all species within the genus Conus, these snails are predatory and venomous. They are capable of "stinging" humans, therefore live ones should be handled carefully or not at all.
