Wikipedia

Conus kinoshitai

Conus kinoshitai, common name Kinoshita's cone, is a species of sea snail, a marine gastropod mollusk in the family Conidae, the cone snails and their allies.[2]

These snails are predatory and venomous. They are capable of "stinging" humans, therefore live ones should be handled carefully or not at all.

Description[edit]

The size of an adult shell varies between 40 mm and 94 mm.

Distribution[edit]

This species occurs in the South China Sea and in the Pacific Ocean from the Philippines to the Solomons. There are also records in the Indian Ocean from Mozambique, Madagascar, and Réunion.
