"Killing snails" (Conidae)


VU Museum of Zoology has 33 specimens of "killing snails" or "cone snails" (family Conidae). Three of those species might be deadly to humans - Conus marmoreus, Conus striatus and Conus textile, although poison of yet another species - Conus magus is used in medicine. Some more information about these snails is prepared by our international volunteer and can be found here - "killing snails".
